Social Supports

Approaches in the disability field are moving away from a medical/treatment focus toward an approach that stresses citizen control, independent living, empowerment, social networks, social support and community inclusion³ . This section of Health Gateway focuses on various kinds and sources of community support for people living with complex chronic conditions and episodic disabilities.
