Description

The onset of a sudden disability can be devastating, but doesnt have to spell the end of a full and active life. After Disability: A Guide to Getting on with Life is the information- packed resource that will help readers reclaim their lives one step at a timefor themselves and for their families.More than 3.6 million Canadians are living with some sort of disability, with mobility-related issues affecting nearly one in ten people. After Disability is the practical Canadian resource guide for living fully with a sudden disability. It is geared to the rising number of adults who have experienced injury, stroke, disease, arthritis or the effects of aging. In a positive and reader-friendly tone, author Lisa Bendall offers valuable information, strategies, suggestions, resources and stories from men and women who have experience with disability-related issues. Topics covered include: Assistive devices and technology Accessible housing Financial concerns Health and health care Self-advocacy and the law Education and employment Sexuality, family life and parenting Transportation Sports, recreation and the arts TravelAfter Disability is the first book of its kind. Informative, accessible and empowering, it is an essential and valuable resource for Canadians learning to live with a disability. Response to After Disability: “This isn't your typical disability resource guide. On subjects as varied and important as abuse, sex, Wheel Trans, hidden and acquired disabilities, alternative medicine, chronic illness, finances and how to plan for the future, Lisa Bendall doesn't give right or wrong answers to your questions. Instead, she presents options, draws on personal experience, talks openly on topics considered by some in the disability community as taboo, and offers practical tips through testimonials from those who know.” — Parenting with a Disability Bulletin (Centre for Independent Living in Toronto)
