Abstract:
Article reviews the literature on personal assistance services (PAS) for people with spinal cord injury with a focus on community integration. PAS are designed to support people with disabilities in their routine performance of activities of daily living. Information is provided regarding consumer satisfaction, service arrangements, safety, and unmet needs. Variables that have the potential to affect positive outcomes include the choice of service provider, race/ethnicity, and health status. Evidence-based recommendations are presented for PAS policy initiatives and future directions in PAS research.
