Aging in Place Principles

Authors: Office of Protection and Advocacy for Persons with Disabilities



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
