Residential Intellectual Disability Facilities in the US
The Residential Intellectual Disability Facilities industry primarily houses and tends to the daily needs of individuals who have been diagnosed with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Federal funding for Medicare and Medicaid services and the number of individuals with access to private healthcare largely determine demand and growth for the industry. The number of adults aged 65 and older also influences industry demand; the elderly may lose the ability to care for intellectually disabled dependents and, therefore, require industry services. Over the five years to 2019, both funding for Medicare and Medicaid services and the number of adults over the age of 65 have steadily increased, boosting industry growth. During the five-year period, smaller private facilities have increasingly replaced large state-run institutions. Consumers prefer smaller facilities because they are often locally based, have fewer residents and are able to provide a more personalized level of care. Since it takes multiple smaller facilities to meet the level of services provided by large, state-run institutions, the number of industry establishments has grown. Over the next five years, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) is expected to continue expanding access to Medicare and Medicaid and increasing funding for mental health services. Moreover, the industry will benefit from more individuals being diagnosed with an intellectual disability due to increased access to healthcare services.
