Possible business opportunity for adults with autism:making pillows for caretakers?
All staff who work with Lauren are aware that we have cameras in Lauren's apartment.
One day, Tom and I were taking a look, as we often do... just to see how things are going.
To our surprise, Lauren was watching a DVD and her companion/caregiver had her head down on the table. It was
10:00 am and the person had arrived at 9:00 a.m.
We watched and watched...she didn't budge. So, we called the agency and they promptly called and woke her up.
Am I missing something? Is it okay to take a nap when caring for a disabled person?
Or, is this a possible business opportunity for people with autism and other disabilities?
Is there a market for pillows for caretakers?
Keeping it real,
