Question "Life Span Clinics" for Adults with CP?

My family & I recently made a 3 thousand mile move across country. In the proccess of looking for new practioners and specialists it was suggested to me that the best place to find the most knowledgeable CP professionals for an adult was a "life span" clinic. I always thought those services were reserved for if you needed in-home care or assistance of some kind. But, I recently heard it was a team approach to helping maintain your best function regardless of severity.

I do not, at present, need adaptive or specialized services. I am just looking for advice and guidance in maintaining my current health. I will be turning 40 this year & want to remain out of a chair and as independent as possible especially while my children are still young (12,10, & 7).

Anyway, sorry for being long winded. I was told they have these "life span" clinics at Rady in San Diego, & at Gillette in St. Paul.

Do any of you have first hand experience with either of these clinics, or are you in any way aware of the nature & usefulness of these programs given my situation?

Any information would be most appreciated

Thanks,
gracie
