This post comes from a twitter follower who to paraphrase his question wants to know how I manage life with personal care attendants. I am now in a time of transition so consider this an introduction to a series that will take place over the next few months.
I will for now comment on life with them up until this point Let me clarify personal care attendants are to me defined as paid support staff
The Teen Years
The look of the attendant for me has changed over the years. I started having attendants when I was 13. The job that the girls I had as young teen was simply to get me out in to the community doing “normal” teenaged activities like going to the movie or mall etc things that one as a teen wouldnt always want to be doing with mom and dad at their side.
The Young Adult Years
When I turned 18 that changed it was now more a focus on personal care dressing bathing etc things that would make it possible for me to live on my own. More to come on this topic in coming weeks or months.
