Aging, Retirement, and End of Life for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities
Abstract: This is part 7 of 18 in a series of videos from the National Goals in Research, Policy, and Practice meeting. The meeting aimed to advance a research agenda that influence policy and practice for and with people who have intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). Speaker talks about how older adults with developmental disabilities transition as they are aging, transitioning into retirement and how it is different from people without a disability, and transitions at the end of or later in life while aging in place or one’s own home. She cites what is known from research already conducted and areas that still need to be researched, as well as a comprehensive geriatric assessment model that can be used for older people living in the community, with or without developmental disabilities, to age happily in the place of their choosing. Run time: 9 minutes 01second.
