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.
