Keywords: disabled person, social diagnostics, international classification of functioning (ICF), restrictions of vital activity and health, assisted living

Currently, the state and the society intend to create conditions for including persons with disabilities in active life, including through transition from in-patient forms of rendering service to assisted living (articles 19 and 27 of the UN Convention). The use of ICF makes it possible to assess objectively and with a high degree of reliability the health of a disabled person from a social point of view, which is important in determining the opportunity for him or her and his or her ability to assisted living. The purpose of the study is to determine the possibility of using ICF in the social diagnosis of a disabled person with various physical dysfunctions in determining his potential and ability to assisted living. Social diagnostics determines the social and environmental status of a disabled person. In the disabled person the results of the diagnosis assess the degree of lost opportunity and ability to carry out self-service, to move independently, to navigate, to communicate, to control the behavior, to learn. The needs of a disabled person with various physical dysfunctions have a specific character and, consequently, necessary assistance in assisted living is established individually depending on the level of independence and the amount of necessary aid in carrying out self-service, household, leisure and social activities. The article presents indicators of social diagnosis of a disabled person with various physical dysfunctions, taking into account the ICF to determine his opportunity and ability to assisted living. ICF be used for social diagnosis to identify the opportunities and abilities of people with disabilities to assisted living and makes it possible to determine objectively necessary activities in preparing a disabled person to the given service.
