Coexisting with COVID


Tips from Disabled People for Disabled People

Disability and Coexisting with COVID


Are you newly disabled and searching for information?

Welcome to a hub of support created exclusively by people with disabilities for people with disabilities. We believe that there are no better teachers and advisors than those with lived experience.

You’re not alone.

  • According to the CDC 61 million adults in the United States live with a disability. 
  • The highest numbers of newly disabled individuals have typically been people over 65, veterans and those affected by gun violence.
  • The American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation estimates that long COVID will add as many as 22 million individuals to the disability community. 

You’ve come to the right place.

Access Living is committed to providing the information, education and support to guide you through this uncertain time, whether you’re dealing with long COVID, chronic illness, aging or any other disability that has caused unexpected changes.
