Aging parents struggle caring for disabled children

From Nine To Noon, 9:08 am on 10 April 2017

An Auckland-based group, Disability Connect, has spoken to more than 50 families and says many are tired of fighting for support and are fearful of what will happen to their children when they are no longer there to advocate for them. The group's chair is Colleen Brown - a member of the Auckland district health board and herself a carer for her adult son who has Down Syndrome.
