It is very rare for a person with PWS to live completely independently. Most adults will either stay with their family or move into residential care or supported living. Whatever option is chosen, access to food and a restricted lower calorie diet must be in place to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Additionally, because of the challenging behaviour associated with PWS, a number of other support and management techniques are often needed.
