People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Growing Old: Understanding and Supporting Age-Related Health Changes and End of Life Care
The number of adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities aged 60 years and older was 641,860 in the year 2000. That number will double to 1.2 million by 2030. This full-day workshop will discuss the similarities and differences in the aging process between the general population and those living with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We will examine the physiological, psychological, social and spiritual dimensions of aging as they impact direct service provision and practical suggestions for addressing each. Additionally, workshop participants will discuss how to support people with intellectual and developmental disabilities through end of life.
