*Definition of Longterm disability
West Toronto Support Services defines a disabled person as a person with ‘a physical or mental impairment which has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on his ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities.’
Meaning of long-term effect
- One which has lasted at least 12 months;
- is likely to last 12 months; or
- is likely to last for the rest of the person’s life.
Meaning of day-to-day activity
This is not defined, but covers activities people do on a daily or regular basis such as shopping, reading and writing, talking, social activities, caring for oneself and others (washing, getting dressed, eating etc), walking and travelling by various forms of transport.
Living independently can be challenging and emotionally stressful in times of need. Our services are committed to supporting you.
