 Full Description: 
On October 30, 2008, Connecticut’s DD Network held a symposium. Together, they developed a set of principles and actions identified as central to supporting people with disabilities to "age in place.”

These were identified as "Principles of Aging in Place:"
• Individual planning
• Continuity of personal relationships
• Continuity of community
• Positive vision for aging
• Integration with generic supports

These were identified as "Action Areas" requiring attention:
1. Develop Coherent State Policy
2. Workforce Development
3. Improve Coordination and Continuity of Health Care
4. Promote Universal Access and Supports

Click on the "Web Links" tab above to go to a web page that fully fleshes out the meanings attached to each of the "Principles" and "Action Steps" referenced above.
