Moving on to Adult Health Care

In these modules we use the word “parents” which can mean any caregivers important in your life. You may have grandparents, foster parents, or other caregivers that help you in your life.

Many young adults like you want to know when it is the right time to find an adult doctor.

The doctor that you see now may tell you that they can no longer see you because you are an adult.

Your current doctor might only care for children, but you are an adult now.

Your parents or others may tell you that they think it is time to see an adult doctor.

You may feel that it is time for you to see an adult doctor.

How exciting! You are moving on to adult health care!
