“E-dignities” project on aging of people with intellectual disabilities : analyzing their housing, medical and social – environmental needs.
The project (2010–2012) has explored life conditions of people with intellectual disabilities across different European countries and challenges related to their aging process. Also strategies for improving these conditions and future perspectives have been examined and discussed. Service providers from France, Italy, Portugal, Belgium, United Kingdom, Austria and Luxemburg were involved in the reciprocal learning process and have participated with staff, service users (self-advocates) and administrators. The perspectives of all participants were valuable and essential in understanding the issues, challenges and areas of risk.
