Milton City Hall will host two experts in accessible housing and in-home care options for individuals and families with special needs on Thursday, Oct. 11 as part of the Milton Disability Awareness Committee (MDAC) Community Link series.
Realtor Michelle Miralles and Para/Quad Services CEO J.D. Frazier's presentations will take place at 7 p.m. in City Council Chambers, according to the city's website. Everyone is invited, and there is no RSVP required.
Miralles specializes in finding and selling homes for the physically challenged, the elderly and those with special needs for Keller Williams Realty, said Kennard Woods, MDAC Chairman. Her experience has led to her program "Building Bridges of Accessibility," a program connecting resources to those who need accessible options in the home process.
Frazier, a Shepherd Center Peer Supporter, owns Para/Quad Services, which matches clients with private home care provider staff so that they may live as independently, productively and comfortably as possible. He is also paraplegic, said Woods, offering the kind of reality-based rapport that can come only from talking with a person who has been there.
A C-4 quadriplegic injured 25 years ago, Frazier runs and owns the firm his father started in 1988 to provide qualified, well-trained attendants for those with injury.
"There is now a number of accessible housing and in-home care options for the elderly or those with spinal cord injury, brain injury or neurological illness," said Woods. "Freedom and comfort are often within reach in the metro area, and these speakers represent a wealth of knowledge on how to find the gems."
