More People Say Medical Conditions Make it Difficult To Find a Job or Remain Employed
Date:9/18/2009

s of disability among U.S. adults are arthritis or rheumatism, back or spinal problems, heart trouble, mental or emotional problems, and lung or respiratory problems, according to the CDC. Rounding out the top 10 causes are diabetes, deafness or hearing problems, stiffness or deformity of limbs/extremities, blindness or vision problems, and stroke. The number of adults with a disability is likely to increase as the larger population of baby boomers grows older, said CDC officials.

Other conditions that cause disability in adults include cancer, autoimmune diseases and immune disorders, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, neurological and degenerative diseases such as Parkinson's disease and ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). The U.S. Census Bureau also reports that nearly 11 million Americans, age 6 and older, need personal assistance with everyday activities.

During October, communities, organizations and people from all walks of life will make a point to recognize the value of every individual and their opportunity to get the most out of their life, no matter the severity or type of disability.

Allsup is observing National Disability Awareness Month with free posters available to healthcare facilities, clinics and other community groups by calling Karen Hercules-Doerr at (800) 854-1418, ext. 5770.
