Medical Home for Youth and Adults with DD

Dr. James Kerwin and Medical Home patient, Natara PearsonWhat is a Medical Home?

The Medical Home is not a “place” where someone lives, but rather a set of services provided in a primary care clinic designed to offer accessible, continuous, family-centered, coordinated, compassionate and culturally sensitive health care services to patients with disabilities.

Our medical home teams up a clinician and social worker with access to other specialties and related services to provide families and individuals with disabilities comprehensive care.

What services does the medical home provide?

Links patients and families to medical and non-medical community resources such as: educational and vocational services, out of home care, family support and specialty care to meet their needs as well as providing coordinated primary health care.

Who it serves?

The Medical Home Project serves adults with a developmental disability. Developmental Disability is defined as a physical, mental or sensory impairment that occurs prior to the age of 22, affects three or more life activities and is likely to last indefinitely. Some examples of disabilities meeting that definition include: Intellectual Disability, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, Autism, and Spina Bifida.
