This paper questions the assumption held by society that the more assistance a person needs the less independence they should be allowed. They argue that the provision of care is based on this assumption. They propose a model which works against this assumed connection. The model describes five different types of commitment that promote well being in the lives of people with disabilities: Anchor / Allies / Assistants / Agendas / Associations.
