COMMENTARY

At a recent South Bergen meeting of parents and family members of developmentally disabled children and adults, Rosemary Wey, 85, shook her head when discussing her 57-year-old son, a resident of the North Jersey Developmental Center in Totowa.

Governor Christie is rapidly relocating the Totowa residents to community settings and other developmental centers - in many cases at locations that elderly and infirm parents cannot travel to. Wey worries that her son will not receive the round the clock medical care and supervision that he now receives. Furthermore, Totowa is her son’s home, and she worries about the traumatic impact that the relocation experience will have on his well-being.
