Project Information


Forum on Aging, Disability, and Independence


Project Scope:

  The IOM will convene a forum of relevant stakeholders from the federal sector, academia, industry, professional associations, and advocacy groups that will provide a structured environment to define and discuss issues within the long-term services and supports system that affect an individual's ability to live independently. This Forum will provide a neutral venue for broad ranging discussions for coordination and integration of aging and disability stakeholders, particularly among public and private entities. With the ultimate goal to serve all individuals with respect to long-term supports and services preferences regardless of age or disability, the Forum will (in its dialogue and discussion at meetings) highlight capacities in which aging and disability network coordination is strong; examine the historic challenges faced by aligning the aging and disability networks; define the scope of the challenges; explore new approaches for resolving problem areas; elevate the visibility and perspectives of the many relevant stakeholders; and set the stage for future policy actions.

The populations of interest to the forum include both individuals who are aging with a disability, and individuals who develop disabilities as they age. Broad areas of examination may include areas such as integrating support systems; participant direction; person-centered planning; assistive technologies; workforce, education, and training; research and evaluation; and public policies. The forum will serve as a platform for disparate communities who possess knowledge about disability and/or aging to share information and offer lessons learned. The forum will provide an opportunity for influential people to network around a common theme so that they may broaden their impact and sphere of influence to improve individuals’ abilities to live independently.
