This presentation will discuss the state of dementia care research and its implications for supporting people with intellectual disabilities who are living with dementia. Drawing upon tested efficacious interventions, specific interventions will be discussed both in terms of their outcomes as well as their essential elements and treatment principles that can be applied to working with people with intellectual disabilities living with dementia. Interventions will be shared that view the individual within their living context and address modifiable factors that may be contributing to care challenges. Interventions assume a person-centric and tailored approach and address the needs of the person as well as their care partners to help support quality of life.
