I'll vouch for your information: a quick Google search on "help for disabled adults louisiana" returned pages and pages of results of where to go for help for your disabled loved one in about 0.46 seconds. For Pete's sake, the mother has worked for the police and the city prosecutor. She was an Alderman. If anyone had access to community resources it was her!If she was as impaired as the parents state -- she would qualify for Social Security Disability and Medicaid here in the US, and a host of other social services at little or no cost to the individual as the programs are tax funded.
Public school would assist in the process, IDK about the private school in the news stories?
If the facts are as published, the parents denied her this.
Vocational Rehabilitation is in every state in the US, and will help either train the individual for a job OR qualify that individual for disability.
Community mental health services are also available in the US, a a community-based worker could come to the home, assess the individual, and chart a path forward. This could include tele-health (on-line appointments,) prescription support, all the way up to inpatient care.
If caregivers request this.
Apparently another service denied Ms. Fletcher.

Sheila Fletcher, 64, has worked as a police and court clerk in Baker and more recently as an assistant to the city prosecutor in Zachary, according to her LinkedIn page. A Slaughter official said she resigned her post on the town’s Board of Aldermen on Jan. 24, three weeks after Lacey Fletcher’s death. She served for four years, most recently as mayor pro tem.
The scene that East Feliciana Parish deputies found on Jan. 3 at the home of a town alderman in Slaughter spelled untold misery.
