Caring For Your Family and Siblings

A message from families that is mentioned again and again is that the positive impacts of having a family member with Down syndrome far outweigh any difficulties or challenges that may come up. The majority of families share that they are stronger and closer as a result of the experience of dealing with a disability, and that they are more focused on the things that really matter in life. There are stresses, however, and you need to recognise the importance of taking care of yourself, your relationships and siblings.
