This article proposes a discussion on the links between normative attributes related to disability
and those referring to aging. In the first part, the main characteristics of the social groups considered as 'disabled' and 'old' are discussed. The discussion highlights the scarcity of works
that have focused on the phenomenon of ageing of people considered as disabled. In the second
part of the text, a discussion of the issues, for support systems and for professionals, related to
the phenomenon of ageing of people considered to be disabled is proposed. It concludes with the
need to develop innovative practices to meet the diversity of needs of the people concerned.
