Aging adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities face many of the same challenges as other aging adults. Physical aging, social isolation, disengagement from work or activities and challenges of retirement are issues that must be faced by aging adults with cognitive disabilities in addition to the possibility of needing additional assistance from carers to determine their future. This report gives an overview of common definitions, care and support issues, and how systems can partner in the delivery of community support networks.
