    Not able to do the Tuesday call in due to work calls however I do have these thoughts/questions:
    We recently opted to keep our daughter home with increased supports rather than transition to residential at this time.
    Because we cannot have in home support during the pandemic we’re unable to access the supports.
    Just received our notice that Priority 1 status has been moved to Priority 2.
    Right now our daughter has zero supports apart from being part of a loving family. Her behavior (increased frustration and aggression/) would suggest that that is not quite enough for extended periods of time. : (
    We can do this for awhile but not indefinitely. She is no longer qualified for residential but even if she was we wouldn’t be able to see her or support her during the transition.
    On line rehab does not seem practical.
    Glad to know the ARC is exploring ways to support individuals and families. Thank you so much.
