Focus On...Social inclusion and ageing with an intellectual disability

23rd March 2015, CARDI

More adults with an intellectual disability (ID) in the Republic of Ireland (ROI) and Northern Ireland (NI) are living to older ages. Social inclusion is vital for the health, wellbeing and quality of life of this group of adults as they age, and they often age without the family and social supports that other adults have.
