Quality of life (QoL) is a wide-ranging construct, applied to measure the wellbeing of specific Individual situations, as well as groups and society . QoL can be defined “as an individual’s evaluation of their overall life experience (their situation, experiences, states and perceptions) at a given time” . Although the concept was implemented in several fields, it lacks studies into the QoL of elderly individuals with intellectual disabilities (ID). Individuals with ID may be amongst the most vulnerable people in society, due to the complexity of physical, behavioural, and emotional issues .
