 Full Description: 
This chapter located in volume seven of the eleven volume set, Comprehensive Clinical Psychology, examines later-life caregiving for adults with intellectual disabilities. The chapter is presented using a life-course perspective that takes into account the social trends and changes in service patterns that effect these families. The introduction presents the social-demographic trends affecting family caregiving. Subsequent sections include descriptions of 1) life expectancy, demographic trends and age-related changes for adults with intellectual disabilities; 2) trends in services, supports and models of community inclusion; 3) family caregiving across the life-course for mothers, fathers and siblings for various culturally diverse groups; 4) support interventions that help adults with intellectual disabilities and their families cope with later-life transitions, including planning for the future; and 5) a future research agenda. (Item no. 300.008)

This chapter was taken from Comprehensive Clinical Psychology and must be ordered directly from the publisher, Elsevier. See Web Links for contact.
