Yes it is possible to have such a trust but the wording must be very specific to prevent invasion of the trust from anyone who may provide services to the disabled person. I suspect the reason you were told that you could not is because agencies/service provider like to try to invade the corpus or primary part of such trust even when there is restrictive language but if you have basically a life estate interest in the trust written the right way you can protect/preserve the integrity of the trust. You should go to either a Disability or Estate law attorney to create the trust as this is not something to do on your own.
