The Task Force on Long Term Services and Supports addresses the issues concerning non-acute health, community living, employment supports, recreational assistance, and other supports that enable individuals with disabilities of all ages to be independent and productive members of the community. We take an expansive view of long term supports, defining Personal Assistance as "One or more persons or devices that help an individual with a disability to perform everyday tasks that they would otherwise perform for themselves if they were not disabled."
