Personal Attendant Services

An attendant in action

Assistance from a personal attendant is often necessary for individuals with severe and profound disabilities to carry out their daily activities, achieve personal mobility and public participation. In Nepal, it is common for friends and family members to provide this assistance.

To respect the dignity of individuals with disabilities and alleviate pressure from their carers, CIL-Kathmandu strongly advocates for the employment of professional attendants and for the inclusion of personal attendant services as a fundamental human right for persons with profound and severe disabilities.
