As for group homes -no comment. I understand they are "used" for "short periods of time". What happens when he "gets out"?
Hope you relaxing NOW with your jug of Green tea in the Rocking Chair while I rest up for Cochlear Implant exercise in 4 hours-Singles Dance- 7.00 to 11.00pm. Still waiting for the important call for audition from "so YOU think YOU can dance"? Can dream -correct?

It could be that it's different for you in Canada. Here, some people stay (live) in group homes for a very long time. I know of some who have lived in them for 20+ years. It depends on what care is needed, how it can be provided, and if it can be provided elsewhere. (e.g. if a person is capable of eventually living on their own, or in "assisted living", etc.) Those who don't fall into independent categories often stay/live in group homes indefinitely.
