Description: A reflection on the strength of personal support networks. Michael was a middle-aged man when his mother came to PLAN. Marie knew her health was declining and she knew that Michael who has an intellectual disability would be alone in the world without her. She and Michael decided to actively create a Personal Network (circle of support) for him. After Marie passed away Michael certainly missed her but his Personal Network has helped him cope. He says They give me hope love and encouragement which I really need now that my mother is dead and gone up to heaven.
