NTG Webinar Series: Promoting Healthy Aging in Adults with I/DD and Dementia

Join for a 4-part series on healthy aging in adults with IDD and dementia.

Studies have found that an overwhelming majority of older people with ID experience problems concerning their physical and mental health, including cognitive decline. There is a risk of underestimating these problems, and the World Health Organization has drawn attention to the fact that people with ID who reach old age do not have the same opportunities for healthy ageing as the general population. This series will focus on the factors that influence the aging process in adults with IDD and their influence on the development of dementia and strategies to support aging adults with I/DD.

June 7, 14, 21 and 28, 2020 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm EDT
