Tertiary prevention

The aim of tertiary prevention is to help an individual to attain his or her full developmental potential. Therefore tertiary prevention partly overlaps with secondary prevention. It encompasses all measures, which prevent or lessen persistent hindrances to the development of functional ability or social competence in people with identified damage or disease. It includes medical, psychological, social, and family support, environmental adjustments, aids, and education. In the ideal state, individual supports are so good that the mentally retarded can live a life similar to that of people without mental retardation. However, even when this can be achieved, problems may reappear when tasks of life increase, or the supporting systems fail.(7!6)
