Adults Under 65 with Disabilities

Resources for Adults Under 65 with Disabilities

Individuals under 65 years old with physical and/or developmental disabilities often experience limitations in one or more daily activities, such as bathing, dressing, or preparing food. They are more likely to skip or delay health care due to cost, have difficulty obtaining access to care, and need caregivers to help with daily living activities. As a result, this population often needs a mix of medical care, behavioral health support, and personal care — offered in a variety of home- and community-based settings — to achieve better health outcomes, greater independence, less social isolation, and better overall quality of life.
