Attention is focussed on multiple stakeholder issues that cut across organizational boundaries and
create ‘wicked’ problems that are difficult to resolve. Our key focus centres on how to effectively
manage the transition of people with intellectual disabilities into aged care that facilitates well-being
for clients, carers and stakeholders. Both the Disability and Aged Care Sectors recognise the
difficulties for people with intellectual disabilities who experience aging issues earlier than other
people and yet, funding barriers and inter-organizational constraints have prevented effective action.
We advocate a storytelling approach to identify obstacles that require further investigation as well as
to leverage stakeholders to potential opportunities for social innovation and the development of
programmes for change.
