Abstract:We ascertained how disability and disabled people were framed within the 4899 articles covering aging well, active aging, healthy aging, natural aging and successful aging in the 300 Canadian newspapers of the Canadian newsstand complete database. The framing was mostly medical. Problems faced by individuals aging with a disability were mostly ignored.
