When illness impacts an individual’s ability to function, that loss of function becomes as important as the illness itself. Being able to move, communicate, care for oneself and continue activities you previously enjoyed are important aspects to a healthy and happy life. When an illness results in disability, it can have a significant impact on a person’s quality of life.
