Peel Long Term Care Residential Services Advisory Committee (Planning Support for Moving to a Long Term Care Home)
A cross sector initiative that developed a model for providing transition planning support to older adults with a developmental disability who are moving to a long term care home. The model includes funding by the Ministry of Community and Social Services for developmental services staffing support within the long term care home.

Weington Developmental Services Planning Group: Committee For Seniors With Developmental Disabilities (planning for cross sector capacity)
The developmental services planning group formed to explore the phenomenon of an aging population with developmental disabilities and the pressures this was placing on the service system. A study corroborated the existing fragmentation of the system and made several recommendations to build cross sector partnerships. The Committee for Seniors with Developmental Disabilities was formed in 2007. For more information click on Wellington Developmental Services Planning Group.
