Seniors and Persons with Disabilities (SPD)

As a group, SPD have more disabilities and/or functional limitations than other demographics.

  • Disabilities may be physical, cognitive, mental, sensory, emotional, developmental or some combination of these factors. They may be present from birth or occur during a person’s lifetime.
  • Functional limitations are difficulties people have completing activities due to one or more health problems (such as vision loss, hearing loss or inability to move one’s legs).
