Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

Despite the increasing number of adults aging with intellectual disabilities and dementia, there is limited research that examines this group’s lived experience, specifically considering participation in meaningful activities and tasks across various environments. This study aims to improve understandings of the impact of the environment on participation for this population and inform development of effective supports and services.
