As people with cerebral palsy age, both their symptoms and the care they need can change significantly from what they experienced in childhood. In addition to contending with the physical, medical and potential cognitive aspects of their disease, an adult with cerebral palsy must also face the same age-related health risks as any adult, including cardiovascular disease, obesity, diabetes, osteoporosis, frailty and fracture risk. Adults living with cerebral palsy need individualized, multidisciplinary care that grows with them.
