Depreciation refers to how your acquired property loses it's value over a period of time. And how that change makes your business a loss over a time. And so you get to deduct some sort of taxes per year on that amount. 

In case of the asset impairment refers to the property which gives you better return over a period of holding it. Think of land, shares in the company. Such type of things give you more returns over a period of time.
