|Title:||Encouraging Quality of Life for Aging Persons who have Developmental Disabilities||Contributor(s):||Kennedy, Dwayne (author)||Publication Date:||2006||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/8164||Abstract:||Studies indicate that people with developmental disabilities are aging at a similar rate to the mainstream. This has occurred from the time of deinstitutionalisation and the move into community based living. Community based programs and services have encouraged quality of life outcomes that address the need for improved medical, physical, and nutritional care. These factors have contributed to addressing psychological, social and spiritual needs, as well as generating opportunities for education and employment. This article discusses encouraging quality of life outcomes for those who are aging with developmental disabilities, and how social educators and caregivers need to attend to training programs that address the dual concerns of aging and disability services. This article gives an overview of the historical background of these issues and highlights the health concerns for those who are aging with developmental disabilities.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Counselling, Psychotherapy, and Health, 2(1), p. 62-67||Publisher:||Australian Counselling Association||Place of Publication:||Brisbane, Australia||ISSN:||1832-1135||Field of Research (FOR):||220405 Religion and Society||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||970122 Expanding Knowledge in Philosophy and Religious Studies||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://www.cphjournal.com/journals/vol_02.php||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 91
