Like anyone else who is aging, adults with lifelong disabilities want to grow old in their own homes and communities. This book will show you how you can help older adults meet the challenges of healthy aging, including living with families, maintaining a house-hold, and coping with community life. Going beyond the basics, this resource offers practical advice from a holistic approach, including such topics as financing older-age services; supporting health, wellness, and sound nutrition; designing services for special challenges related to old age; adapting home environments; and coping with end-of-life challenges.
