Building Community Capacity to Meet the Needs of People with Disabilities as they Age


  • Michelle Putnam, PhD, MSW, Simmons University
  • Lieke Van Heumen, PhD, MS, FAAIDD, University of Illinois-Chicago

    This webinar will discuss findings from a national study that sought to identify the areas where capacity building is most needed in the long-term supports and service network to effectively serve people with life-long disability or long-term disability experience as they age. The greatest capacity building needs were identified in the areas of professional skills, organizational operations, service/care models, and public policies to effectively serve older adults with long-term serious mental illness, intellectual and developmental disabilities, and physical and sensory disabilities.
