Abstract

This white paper, authored by Dr. Elizabeth Perkins, discusses the challenges encountered by older caregivers of adults with intellectual disabilities when they are simultaneously caregiving for other aging family members. The white paper is an attempt to alert policy makers and service providers alike of this emerging trend among lifelong family caregivers and offers recommendations for how to increase the availability of supports to assist these very dedicated but overburdened individuals.
