Lifetime Support was created to help families oversee the care and finances of their loved ones. Lifetime Support allows families to plan ahead and arrange to have someone take on these important responsibilities in the event that family members become unable to do so.
Lifetime Support currently serves as the legal guardian (in some cases with a family member as co-guardian) of adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. In addition, Lifetime Support serves as trustee of several special needs trusts created to benefit individuals for whom it also serves as guardian and/or representative payee.
Although Lifetime Support serves many individuals who live in housing and/or attend day programs run by The Arc, it also serves individuals who are not receiving any supports from The Arc.
