Solving the Aging Caregiver Crisis

 

Reducing the waiting list for people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities is a longstanding goal of the Colorado General Assembly and Alliance. In 2014, the General Assembly passed HB14-1051 with the purpose of creating a plan to eliminate the waiting list for the Developmental Disabilities (HCBS-DD) waiver by 2020, but a comprehensive plan has not been adopted. Meanwhile, more than 2,600 people continue to wait for comprehensive IDD services, some of whom have aging caregivers providing their primary support.
