People with mobility impairments experience many physical barriers that reduce or eliminate their ability to live independently and take part in mainstream society. Some require assistance with every aspect of personal care and daily living while others simply have difficulty navigating spaces that are not designed for access. Safety, well-being, and access to experiences outside the home often hinge upon hired personal attendants. Often an uncomfortable balance must be struck, weighing costly (and scarce) attendant care against the safety and comfort of individuals with disabilities.
