This book addresses the experiences of women with intellectual disabilities as they age. Through the stories of women in various countries, it explores healthy aging and the changing disability policies and programs around the world. It examines the women's economic and social supports, health, social roles, and general well-being and quality of life. Each chapter begins with a literature review as a background for the experiences of the sample of women. The authors take a holistic approach, treating intellectual disability as a "lifestyle" and aging as a "life course event." They encourage researchers and service providers to adopt this approach rather than the traditional "disease model" of disability. Their goal is to help women with disabilities develop a voice and a healthy lifestyle characterized by dignity, respect, and contribution.
