Attendant Care

"Attendant services" refer to physical assistance provided by another person for routine activities of living, such as transferring, showering, dressing or undressing. You would do these for yourself if it were not for your physical disability. The consumer takes responsibility for directing the way in which this assistance is provided.

Please note: Attendant services do not include services such as physiotherapy, rehabilitation, life-skills teaching, active nursing, socializing, etc.
