What is so precious about living in your own home? For quadriplegics, it means having the freedom to make decisions about their physical needs and their personal care, as well as ordinary daily choices such as what to eat and when.

These simple yet cherished freedoms are not possible without adequate support for attendant care.

“The essence of Independent Living is the freedom to make decisions about your own life and to participate fully in your community.”  by John Evans

“.…Independent Living means that disabled people want the same life opportunities and the same choices in every day life that their non-disabled brothers and sisters, neighbours and friends take for granted.”  by Adolph Ratzka
