dc.descriptionThe current assumption is that people with disabilities are those in receipt of care, and that care is being provided by non-disabled family or friends. However, many services for people with intellectual disabilities are finding that those in receipt of their services are now in the position of providing care and support to their aging parents. This is a cause for concern for those services who may feel ill-prepared to support people with intellectual disabilities in this new role. The purpose of this article is to introduce the concept of reciprocal care as it relates to intellectual disability and aged care. A short review of existing literature is presented, followed by the posing of a selection of questions for both disability service providers and those currently providing supports to Family Carers in Ireland. These questions do not have any obvious answers, and it is hoped that this paper will stimulate discussion of a topic which has only recently begun to emerge as a significant concern.en
