Dementia diagnosis and care for people with IDD can be complex - healthcare advocacy is crucial to their well-being. Learn what you can do!

People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities develop Dementia just as other aging adults, but diagnosis and treatment comes with some additional challenges. However, there is a genetic connection between Down Syndrome and Alzheimer’s Dementia. Studies estimate 30% or more of people with Down Syndrome will develop Alzheimer’s in their 50s, and the number jumps to 60% developing Alzheimer’s by age 60 and older. Diagnosis and care for individuals with IDD can be complex, and health care advocacy is crucial to their well-being.

Training Topics Include:

  • Dementia and Down Syndrome
  • How to Identify and Track Symptoms
  • How to Communicate to Health Professionals
  • How to Adapt Day-to-Day Care and What to Prepare as Symptoms Progress
