Special needs housing and care experts to speak Oct. 11.


Two experts in accessible housing and in-home care options for individuals and families with special needs will discuss their work 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 at Milton's City Hall, 13000 Deerfield Parkway, Suite 107E (click here for directions). 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.

"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."
