In total, 237 families completed our census surveybetween June and September 2015. The results showed that 61.6 per cent of the partici-pants would choose ageing in place with their ageing offspring with ID, while 38.4 percent of the participants would stay in their previous place without their disabled children,move in with their other children or move to a nursing home.

To meet theneeds of older parents and their ageing offspring with ID, care and housing transitionsshould be considered as part of long-term care policy. ...
