Personal Assistance from the Author: Louise Rose-Innes. A thrilling suspense from Entangled's Ignite imprint... Her life is in the hands of a man she can't trust... Trapped in a country in the midst of a rebellion, Hannah Evans is on the run for her life. Her only hope of escape is to join forces with disgraced Special Forces operative Tom Wilde, who is overseeing the extraction of all British nationals from the embassy. It's a form of punishment for his last failed mission, from which neither his body, nor his mind, has fully recovered. When he meets Hannah, he sees an opportunity to redeem himself. The information she holds is important enough to end the civil war—all he needs to do is get her out of the war-ridden country alive and back to Britain. The sexual attraction between them is too intense to ignore, but Hannah knows the career-soldier has a hidden agenda. Can she trust him to lead her to safety, or will he sacrifice her in his bid for redemption?

Personal Assistance from the Author: Robert Morris. Because of wide-ranging changes in demographics, family structure, and the financing and delivery of health services, long-term care has emerged as an important concern for health and public policy. But long-term care has lacked a conceptual foundation that public policy analysts and families can draw upon to shape its development. Personal Assistance: The Future of Home Care examines how community-based long-term care can develop constructively in an environment in which expanded public financing is an unlikely option. The authors begin by discussing the history, financing, and delivery of long-term care. Chapters propose strategies for strengthening home- and community-based services: expanding cash payments and more extensive self-financing, expanding the use of assistive technology and supported housing, and increasing the use of volunteers. Examining all aspects of current medical and home care services, the authors propose a new model for home care that maximizes cost-effective delivery of reliable services tailored to individual needs. Unlike current health care programs, their proposal builds on new insurance options to show how reallocating personal resources can make home care costs comparable to those of a nursing home but allow the individual greater personal freedom. At a time when an aging population, changing family structure, and rising medical costs combine to create an ever greater need for long-term care, the conclusions and recommendations in this book are especially timely. Personal Assistance will be of interest to health care professionals, policy makers, and all who are involved in caring for the nearly twenty million persons who currently live at home with disabilities.

The Intersection Of Personal Assistance Services And Transition Outcomes In Neuromuscular Disease from the Author: Jodi Michele Wolff. Striking disparities exist in higher education and employment rates between young adults with disabilities and their non-disabled peers. This qualitative study examined the lived experiences of nine young adults ages 24-35 with neuromuscular disease and how their use of personal assistance services (PAS) impacted their pursuit of higher education and employment. Participants overall had positive college experiences and reported the easiest time coordinating PAS was during college. Families of participants expected college attendance, but the lack of experience with PAS prior to college impacted higher education; the need for PAS influenced choice of college. Participants used consumer-driven and agency based models, experienced great stress coordinating PAS, experienced low quality and high turnover of staff, were restricted in their ability to be spontaneous, and at times limited their needs to avoid asking for assistance. A significant amount of informal caregiving from family and friends was used to support higher education and employment. Participants speculated that societal stereotypes and low expectations of people with disabilities contribute to low rates of employment and higher education, and reported negative interactions with vocational rehabilitation counselors. Eligibility criteria for federal and state PAS programs limited income and created work disincentives, were complex to understand and navigate, and discouraged both advancement in their careers and the willingness to pursue advanced degrees. Young adults with neuromuscular disease are willing, wanting, and capable to participate in higher education and gainful employment and could not do so without access to reliable quality PAS. Efforts to prepare families and youth to fund and coordinate PAS, eliminate work disincentives, and coordinate transition planning between multiple support agencies could help break the cycle of poverty in the disability community and encourage employment.
