Ageing of people with intellectual disabilitiesand their families
30 May - 1 June 2013, Cankarjev dom, Ljubljana, Slovenia
Dear friends, It is a great achievement of our time that people with intellectual disabilities, like the rest
of Europe’s population, are living longer than ever before. Older people with intellectual
disabilities have essentially the same hopes as other people of their age: they want to liveindependently, maintain a good quality of life and be valued members of theircommunities. Achieving this remains a challenge for the person with an intellectualdisability and a challenge to society. In later life, these challenges grow due to compellingneeds associated with ageing and inevitable changes in personal circumstances.Continuereading
