Born with an intellectual disability, Jerry, 58, was cared for by his mother and father his entire life. When his parents died in 2015, there was no other family to care for Jerry. He was referred to the Dallas County Probate Court system, which appointed The Senior Source to serve as his guardian.
The Guardianship Program team helped Jerry transition from his childhood home to a group home. The change wasn’t easy, but Jerry still gets to see his church family and is supported by new friends and staff at his group home. His guardianship case managers at The Senior Source make regular visits to evaluate his mental and physical needs, and advocate for Jerry’s well-being. Today, Jerry is thriving and healthy in his new surroundings.
