The National Task Group on Intellectual Disabilities and Dementia Practices has issued a comprehensive plan for improving the community care of adults with intellectual disabilities affected by dementia. The Group report “My Thinker’s Not Working: A National Strategy for Enabling Adults with Intellectual Disabilities Affected by Dementia to Remain in Their Community and Receive Quality Services” is available here.
The document will be presented to the National Alzheimer Project Act Advisory Council meeting on January 17, 2012 in Washington, DC.
