Transferring Responsibility: The Nature and Effectiveness of Parental Planning for the Future of Adults with Intellectual Disability Who Remain at Home until Mid-Life.
Bigby, Christine
Journal of Intellectual and Developmental Disability, v21 n4 p295-312 Dec 1996
This study examined the plans for transition from parental care made by parents of 62 older adults with mental retardation and found that few parents had made comprehensive plans but most had nominated someone to take over responsibility for the person with mental retardation. These key person succession plans were an effective form of planning. (Author/CR)
