Shared Attendant Care

What Makes Us Different

QUAD‘s 24/7 Shared Attendant Care is what truly makes us different from other living options for people who rely on a wheelchair for mobility. No other independent living provider offers such a unique, practical, life-tested model of care. 


Residents who elect these optional Shared Attendant Care services can get assistance for activities that they cannot physically do for themselves. They choose from a menu of daily services that might include wake-up or bedtime care, cooking, medical assistance and help with projects and activities. However, QUAD aims to help its residents maintain their independent living. Residents choose and direct these services themselves, ensuring that they receive only the help and support they really need!  While QUAD ‘s attendants are not medical professionals, they do receive special training in the specific care needs of quadriplegics and other wheelchair-bound conditions.

Services are provided under a contract with the Oregon Department of Human Services-Seniors & People with Disabilities Division. This tightly-managed system of resident-directed personal assistance is delivered at about one-third of the cost of skilled nursing care. It is able to maintain efficiency and cost-effectiveness because residents share the team of attendants and take pride in living independent, self-directed lives. Our wheelchair-accessible apartments in Portland provide residents with space and support they need while retaining their independence.
