Affective and anxiety diagnoses are common in older people with intellectual disability (ID). The aim was to describe support and social services for older people with ID and affective and/or anxiety diagnoses, also to investigate in this study group the association between support and social services and frailty factors in terms of specialist healthcare utilisation, multimorbidity, polypharmacy, level of ID and behavioural impairment. Data was selected from four population-based Swedish national registries, on 871 identified persons with affective and/or anxiety diagnoses and ID. Multivariate regression analysis was used to investigate associations between frailty factors during 2002-2012 and social services in 2012. People with multimorbidity who frequently utilised specialist healthcare were less likely to utilise residential arrangements. Those with polypharmacy were more likely utilise residential arrangements, and receive personal contact. People with moderate, severe/profound levels of ID were more likely to utilise residential arrangements and to pursue daily activities.
