"Disability trends: Oldest old improving, boomers doing worse" - My Science. 10/29/2012.

In a study of later life disability trends, Vicki Freedman reports that a new pattern has emerged by age. "We found essentially flat trends for those between 65 and 84 years of age, sandwiched between increases among the population ages 55 to 64 and decreases among those ages 85 and older."
