Adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) experience higher rates of frailty at earlier ages than the general population. Collaboration between home care and developmental services sectors is important to support adults with IDD who are frail in the community.

In this webinar, presenters will focus on the collaboration between Reena and the Toronto Central Local Health Integration Network, and share “Call to Action” resources to support individuals, families, and providers in the context of frailty and IDD.

This interactive webinar will provide information on:

  • Frailty among adults with IDD
  • Principles and recommendations to guide action on frailty
  • Key elements of effective intersectoral collaboration in the context of supporting adults with IDD who are frail

This webinar is hosted by the Centre for Studies in Aging and Health.
