The article describes an attendant care scheme based on individualised consumer control and worker participation. The author, an attendant of the Disability Attendant Study Incorporated in Victoria, maintains that attendant care is the key to de-institutionalisation and gives people with disabilities greater control over their lives and time. It allows people to live independently and contribute to the broader community, and for greater flexibility in service delivery. Keyword: Individualisation
