Sonoran UCEDD's Aging and Transitions Project


Description:

From the Sonoran UCEDD Aging and Transitions Project Website:

"People with disabilities in Arizona comprise a population that is growing, aging, and becoming increasingly diverse. This statewide project has three major objectives:

- describe and address barriers to effective late life transitions for aging caregivers of adults with developmental disabilities (DD);

- promote effective late life transitions for adults with DD; and

- improve aging-related and end-of-life care for people with DD.

Data and input will be collected from aging caregivers/family members, people with DD, service providers, advocacy groups and agencies, and health care providers. The outcomes will be an increased understanding of the needs of aging caregivers and people with DD and the strategies they utilize to plan for their future; the development of appropriate educational materials/training for service providers and families; and the promotion of effective transitional planning policies and end of life care for individuals with DD in Arizona."
