Project Main Description

People with intellectual disability are living longer, with many living active productive lives. As they age, people with intellectual disability face the same health and mental health issues as the rest of the community, but some will experience these at much younger ages. The SAge-ID Study is looking at the rates of physical and mental health problems in older people with Intellectual Disability. We also hope to learn what things help a person with ID to stay healthy as they age.

The SAge-ID Study is a new collaboration between researchers from the University of New South Wales, La Trobe University, and Monash University. The project has received funding from Ageing, Disability and Home Care, the Dementia Collaborative Research Centers – Assessment and Better Care, and from La Trobe Rural Health School.
