dc.description.abstractIn recent years, a combination of factors has seen life expectancies for people with intellectual disabilities increase dramatically. The majority of research so far has focused upon metropolitan areas, but little information is available regarding the impact of this relatively new phenomenon within rural localities. The authors examine the issues surrounding aging with an intellectual disability within rural areas and identify possible areas of change to policy and practice that may better support the individual living in non-metropolitan locations. A three-round Delphi research model was utilized over a period of 12 months to examine the views of disability support workers from rural organizations regarding issues associated with aging. This study detailed a large number of items rated as important by direct care staff. A thematic analysis identified specific areas of concern including funding, training challenges and options, and access to relevant generic and specialist services. The findings of this study have implications for the delivery of rural services and training of staff. The results point to the need for changes to initial training and professional development options to support staff to work successfully with people with intellectual disabilities who are aging in rural areas.en
