The aging population and the increase in chronic diseases are phenomena that show an increasing trend and have been addressed in the study of epidemiological and demographic transition. Yet, the relationship they have with disability, their contributions to dependence and their implications for the care of people has not been sufficiently addressed. This paper poses how disability, chronicity and aging can be a gateway or transit each other. It also emphasizes the need to understand the care in a broader sense to promote self-determination and independence.
