Aging and I/DD: Planning for Growing Older
Wednesday, December 13, 2017 from 2:00 pm―3:00 pm Eastern
In this webinar hosted by The Arc’s Center for Future Planning, Dr. Kathie Bishop will review the aging process and discuss what successful aging looks like for people with I/DD. Kathie will address planning and skill-building to support people with complex medical needs and adults with I/DD who experience cognitive or functioning loss, possibly related to dementia. Dr. Bishop will also describe how people with I/DD and their families can work together to advocate to and with health care professionals to make sure that they receive needed medical care and that their wishes are carried out.
Note: This is a second presentation of the same material presented in September 2017.
