Abstract: Many reasons have been given for the failure of rehabilitation counselors to work with older, disabled persons. Among these are negative attitudes and public policies that exclude these individuals from the traditional rehabilitation caseloads. Another reason is a lack of awareness and knowledge among rehabilitation professionals of the needs and concerns of older, disabled persons and how they may be met. In this article the author attempts to fill a gap in the existing knowledge base by identifying the network of personal and community supports that may be mobilized by rehabilitation counselors in working with older, disabled persons.
