Past research has demonstrated that adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) are twice as likely to use home care services and experience higher rates of frailty than the general population—and at much younger ages. There is a recognized need for better collaboration among health and developmental services providers to improve policies and practices to support aging in the community.
This interactive webinar will provide information on:
• Frailty among adults with IDD
• Development and validation of a frailty index for persons with IDD
• Opportunities to implement the frailty index in Ontario’s home care system
