Abstract

We examined the availability of services for the developmentally disabled elderly and the concerns expressed by the service provider. We compared agencies which traditionally served individuals with developmental disabilities versus those serving the elderly populations. Although both types of agencies recognized the need for services, concern was raised as to who would provide them and how the two groups would blend.
