Transitioning caregivers for people with disabilities

The New York State Office for the Aging (NYSOFA) has a new resource guide for older adult caregivers of individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities.

NYSOFA’s Future Planning Guidebook For Older Caregivers of Adults with I/DD, available here, connects older adult caregivers with information and resources to begin the process of long-term planning. This includes financial and legal tools as well as supportive programs and services.

In many cases, says NYSOFA Director Greg Olsen in a statement, services and options are available to people of all ages who are in a caregiver role.

The resource guide was developed with support from the U.S. Administration for Community Living (ACL) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services through the New York State Developmental Disabilities Planning Council (DDPC).
