As older adults with intellectual disabilities live longer and reside in community-based accommodation, the availability of support programmes and services becomes important to the maintenance of independent living. One hundred and sixty-two community-based organisations in Brisbane, Australia, that assist older adults or people with intellectual disabilities were surveyed regarding the types of programmes offered to older adults with intellectual disabilities. Reports on the services provided by these agencies.
