Summary A total of 279 adults with cerebral palsy from across Australia responded to a survey which sought information about their health, modes of communication, access to information and perception of their own ageing process. Results indicated that 77% of the respondents believed that their physical condition was changing and 78% were taking medication. All but 11% indicated that the ageing process was having some effect on their lifestyle. A total of 22% had made retirement plans. Respondents discussed their health concerns with their family or attendants and 57% judged their general practitioner knowledgeable about cerebral palsy. The implications of the results for future service planning and delivery are considered.
