Last week on July 26th we recognized the 31st Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). While 31 is not one of the “big” anniversaries ending in five or zero, this year’s turn around the sun seems especially important as a significant number of our communities are hoping to re-open as we transition to another phase of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The ADA is forward thinking but when it was signed we may not have anticipated how many aging Americans would need its protections. As Disability and aging become mainstream, our views on these issues have evolved and as a result we are more concerned about issues of caregiving.
