AGING, DISABILITY AND THE ADA

August 4, 2017

Each day in America, nearly 10,000 people turn 65 years old.  With a population of approximately 15 million, New England lays claim to the largest percentage of Baby Boomers in the country.  Many of these individuals are living with acquired disabilities, though they may not readily identify as having a disability.  And they may not realize that their rights are protected by the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Since 1991, The ADA has supported a broad range of individuals to live full, meaning lives in the community.  The New England ADA Center works closely with those with rights and those with responsibilities to implement the ADA, ensuring equal access to community life for our aging population.  The Center is embarking on a multi-media campaign to inform older people with disabilities about their rights under the ADA.
