Caring for seniors with intellectual disabilities

13abc (WTVG) - Tuesday, the Lucas County Board of Developmental Disabilities held a senior far in conjunction with Sunshine Communities.

It was an opportunity for clients and their loved ones to learn about the process of aging with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

"People with disabilities ... living, working playing in the community ... be able to live the community as everybody else does," says Sharon Helle, Lucas County Board of Developmental Disabilities.

More than 20 vendors took part in the event, including the Area Office on Aging, the Alzheimer's Organization, and the Better Business Bureau.
