Description:
Wave 3 of The Intellectual Disability Supplement to the Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing (IDS-TILDA) marks ten years since its inception as the first longitudinal study of adults with an intellectual disability to run in tandem with a national longitudinal study on ageing. Over those ten years, IDS-TILDA has provided essential data on the changes in the lives of people with an intellectual disability in terms of physical, mental and cognitive health, social participation and connectedness, health care utilisation and family caregiving. Where possible, questions were based on those asked to members of the general population by The Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing (TILDA). This allowed for direct comparisons between changes that have occurred in the lives of those ageing with an intellectual disability and those ageing in the general population. The rich data collected has highlighted areas where the ageing experience has been similar for both, and also areas where there are stark differences in the ageing profile. This understanding of similarities and differences has highlighted areas for policy and service provision consideration. Data generated from IDS-TILDA also continues to identify progress in the changes in people’s lives promised in key policy documents, including Healthy Ireland - A Framework for Improved Health and Wellbeing 2013-2025, the National Dementia Strategy, 2014, and Time to Move on from Congregated Settings, 2011.
