Aging Adults with Developmental Disabilities
Like the general population, people with developmental disabilities are living longer too. Lifespan recognized this trend, and in 1987 we launched the first adult day service that allows people with developmental disabilities to "retire" from goal-driven worksites. We now have almost 20 years experience providing care for aging (45 plus) adults with development disabilities.
Our services for this population also include Service Coordination and the unique Integration program that allows adults with developmental disabilities to attend a regular senior center.
In 2000 Lifespan recognized another emerging trend - that people with all types of disabilites are outliving their primary caregivers, their parents. Often, this was occuring without planning done for the future care of the family member with the disability and the result was crisis.
As a result, Lifespan and the Al Sigl Center joined together to launch the Future Care Planning Service.
