NICE Guideline on care and support of people growing older with learning disabilities
NICE has produced new guidelines on how organisations, including social care providers, can provide for the care and support needs of people growing older with learning disabilities and their families and carers.
As they grow older, people with learning disabilities have many of the same age-related health and social care needs as other people but they also face specific challenges associated with their learning disability. The new guidance covers identifying changing needs, planning for the future, and delivering services including health, social care and housing.
