Steady aging in the world's population is estimated to substantially increase the prevalence of age-related neurological disabilities across the world primarily from stroke and dementia. Yet, as the numbers of neurologically impaired older adults grow, local neurorehabilitation caseloads are estimated to increasingly become more ethnically heterogenous as diversity environments in each country are impacted by new immigrants and their descendants. Suitable numbers of appropriately trained speech-language clinicians will be necessary to meet these service demands. The articles in this issue provide a step forward to illustrate the broad multidisciplinary evidence required to meet the challenges of an intensifying global healthcare crisis: the steady growth of diverse adult neurorehabilitation caseloads in an aging world.
