LIFEspan (Living Independently and Fully Engaged) is a partnership program between the Toronto Rehabilitation Institute and Bloorview Kids Rehab to achieve a coordinated approach to transitioning young adult clients from pediatric to adult services, and address the need for developing specialized adult services for individuals with childhood onset conditions. After years of receiving specialized services from a holistic team in the pediatric setting, clients and families struggle to navigate an adult system that is foreign to them, where a lack of expertise with respect to aging with childhood onset conditions is evident. LIFEspan offers a single point of access where clients can meet with an expert interdisciplinary team that is familiar with their specific needs. There are several monitoring measures in place and these are reported to the Toronto Central LHIN.
