Abstract (Summary)

Adults with developmental disabilities (DD) are aging. Many parents who have been their life long caregivers can identify with the baby boomer generation that is soon reaching the age of 65 years and older. The potential impact on demand for and provision of health and supportive services is anticipated to climb for this aging population. Given the complexities and dynamics in families that provide care for adults with developmental disabilities, a clinic tailored to target the unique needs of those families makes sense. HealthCollab Clinic seeks to fill an unmet need. The specialized community clinic is equipped with accessible equipment and trained professionals that builds a supportive safety net for families seeking quality health care in the greater Los Angeles County.
