by Semenza, Gina D., M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2015, 84; 1584941
Abstract (Summary)

This project report served as a framework for an aging and disability lifestyle blog named Evolving Abilities. It listed resources and highlighted the vitality and value in aging with a disability by promoting a realistic and dynamic perspective written by a disability gerontologist. The niche audience targeted people aging with disabilities (or chronic health conditions). Evolving Abilities supported connectedness and full inclusion by addressing ageism and ableism.
