The University of Southern Queensland invites parents and adult siblings of an adult with intellectual impairment to participate in a survey about residential care planning for individuals with intellectual impairment. 

The study would like to hear from families at all stages of planning – from those who have not yet considered residential planning through to those who have already enacted plans. 

The survey aims at exploring individual intentions, beliefs, wishes, and concerns surrounding the residential care of family members with intellectual impairment. 

Participation involves completing the online (or print) questionnaire which is expected to take between 30 and 60 minutes.  Participation is voluntary and responses are anonymous. 

This study is being run as part of a PhD thesis.
