Beschrijving

People with disabilities often require personal §care assistance (PCA) to perform daily activities §and pursue life roles. PCA has historically been §institution-based, resulting in the segregation of §disabled people. Home-based PCA is an alternative §to institutional care. These services can be agency-§directed or consumer-directed. Disability rights §activists strongly advocate for consumer-directed §programs since personal control is key to a §satisfying life. This text describes the foundations §of consumer-direction and a study which tested the §postulate that having control of and choice in PCA §services result in a more satisfactory life. Since §the incurrence of disability can result in §impairments that contribute to a dissatisfying loss §of control over many aspects of life, the finding §that disabled people can mediate their limitations §by self-managing their PCA is important. The §significant impact of self-management of PCA on life §satisfaction supports the value of consumer-§directed PCA programs for persons with disabilities. §The implications of consumer-direction for §healthcare services, policies, and research are §discussed.
