Caregiver or personal assistant?

Hi folks

I just stumpled over your group because I was catched by the word caregiver.

I'm a disabled man and thus I've some idea about care. I really don't like the term "care giver", since I don't want to be looked after/cared for. We (the people from the Independent Living Movement) prefer "personal assistants". It reflects that all impulse should come from the disabled person.

What do you think ?
