Le vieillissement des personnes en situation de handicap : un regard démographique sur la Bourgogne-Franche-Comté

Abstract : The aging of people with disabilities has become, in the last forty years, a significant issue in the medico-social sector and also in our society. The lengthening of life is a positive phenomenon, a result of the efforts to professionalize the accompaniment of people with disabilities. Aging is a process, certainly irreversible, but natural. If a few people are the rare witnesses, in the 1980s, the phenomenon grows with time and becomes a demographic phenomenon. For the demographer, the notion of aging applies to a population and not to individuals. The observation of this process makes it possible to predict the trend of the changing needs of a population in the health, social and medico-social fields, but does not indicate anything about the needs of the aging person. Populations are changing, new ones are emerging and our societal system needs to adapt to new needs. The socio-demographic approach of the aging of people with disabilities proposed here tends to study the specificities of the aging population within medical and social services and institutions in the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region. Working on this subject implies understanding but also measuring the extent of the problem.
