dc.description.abstractThis chapter began with an introduction to disability and aging as part of the global human condition. It is then argued that a disability perspective is critical to understanding different ways people are aging and those who gain disabilities as they age. Five different models of disability are introduced to give context to some of the debates and ways in which disability is understood. Then the term biosocial is introduced and how that will impact on future creation of disability. It is argued that a biosocial model of disability will begin to evolve.en
