Employment, and training for employment, at the present moment is extremely poor for PWD. Difficult as all these stages were, the fifth stage is the hardest to face, especially for families where the PWD requires life-long support. Finally, some require life-long support for everyday living tasks. Government, private and NGO facilities for long-term residential care of PWD who require life-long support are limited in number and poor in quality. But even more importantly, we need to generate right-heartedpersons as carers; people who will be there to support these PWD long-term.
