10:00 AM Pacific / 11:00 AM Mountain / 12:00 PM Central / 1:00 PM



Part of the National Alzheimer’s and Dementia Resource Center webinar series sponsored by the Administration for Community Living.


Pain management and palliative care are often difficult to access for people with both intellectual and developmental disabilities and dementia. The presentation utilizes recent work of the International Summit on Intellectual Disability and Dementia which defined advanced dementia, proposed how palliative care services (including hospice) may be utilized and made recommendations for how advanced directives and advance care planning prior to the extensive progression of dementia may be facilitated. Case examples will be offered that help illustrate the value of service integration efforts between intellectual disability and palliative care providers, specialized training for caregivers on end of life care and supports, and involvement of adults with intellectual disability early on in their advance care planning.


Presenters: Mary Hogan and Philip McCallion
