Demand for the Residential Intellectual Disability Facilities industry will pick up over the next five years, as family caregivers grow older and are unable to care for disabled individuals. Healthcare reform contains provisions for intellectual disability diagnosis and coverage, which will further support growth during the period. Nevertheless, federal and state government budget deficits will lead to closer scrutiny of Medicaid spending that could potentially threaten industry funding during the five years to 2018.
This industry primarily houses and tends to the daily needs of individuals diagnosed with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Industry operators focus on providing room, board, protective supervision and counseling. Additionally, some form of healthcare may be provided at industry facilities.
