Who Can I Have Look After A Disabled Family Member While I’m At Work?

KTUL-TV recently featured a story that concerns people who are responsible for taking care of a disabled family member. Reportedly, Oklahoma lawmakers are considering shutting down adult daycare facilities statewide.

Why Are Adult Day Care Centers in Oklahoma Shutting Down?

Per the KTUL-TV report, the reason the adult daycare facilities could be closing is because of Oklahoma’s state budgeting crisis. These facilities are often the only affordable option for parents who care for adult sons and daughters with disabilities to have their adult children properly cared for while they are at work. Therefore, if Oklahoma lawmakers pass a budget that cuts funding to adult daycare centers, it could be disastrous for families statewide.

A mother of a 21-year-old man with cerebral palsy who KTUL-TV spoke with said that she has been contacting lawmakers and begging them to keep the facilities open. However, as of this writing, the lawmakers she called either did not answer her call or have yet to return her call.

What Costs Do Disability Benefits Cover?

In the following video, Tulsa disability benefits attorney Steve Troutman discusses what costs Social Security Disability benefits, including Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI), can be used to cover.


    I didn't think there was a caring professional considerate attorney firm on the planet, but Troutman & Troutman proved me wrong. From the receptionist to the legal assistance to the attorney and more they were exceptional people.

    They did a fantastic job getting everything gathered up and getting the trial done as quickly as possible. Anytime I had a question they were patient and help me understand what was going on. Especially Christy and Charlie were great.

    Steve Troutman was able to get my short-term and long-term disability for me. Then Erin another lawyer for their firm got my Social security disability for me. Great people.

    Mr. Troutman walked me through the entire process. Heather was available each time I called, answered all my crazy questions, and helped me fill out forms along the way. I was never treated like I was wasting time.
