Living Well: Disability in Every Day Life


The United Nations’ Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA) estimated that there are over 1 billion people who are believed to be living with some form of disability and that the number of people living with disability is increasing. Accordingly, this is in part due to ageing populations and an increase in chronic health conditions.

Disabilities are extremely diverse and may differ from one person to another. This can take on many dimensions such as:

  • Impairment in a person’s body structure or function, or mental functioning. Examples of impairments include loss of a limb, loss of vision, or memory loss.
  • Activity limitation such as difficulty seeing, hearing, walking, or problem solving.
  • Participation restrictions in normal daily activities such as working, engaging in social and recreational activities, and obtaining health care and preventive services.
