Stop Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of our "ID" (Intellectual Disabilities) Citizens
- State of Virginia
- United States of America
I have dedicated 22 years of caring and providing for an individual with disabilities, this country needs to for once and for all get a list of priorities for the "ID" individuals to remain functioning wherever they live in the community. These folks are being abused, neglected and taken advantage of by others who are NOT providing "Quality of Life".
The Human Rights people need to stop riding the fence and make the right rules apply to all individuals depending on their circumstances. With the proper training, supports and guidence, these folks can have a life like mine and yours. Lets support these folks who have lost their voices and some of whom cannot speak at all. There are many qualified, caring , loving individuals in this country who can provide services for these individuals in their homes or wherever the person decides they want to be.
It's their choice and we need listen and learn how to support their choices. It's time to stop the dictating on how these folks should live their lives. Lets give them freedom of speech and the dignity to make their own choices, with supports if needed. People it's time to do the right thing!!
