Focus group interviews were used to learn about the experiences of seven direct-care providers who provide services to young adults with disabilities during the transition to adult life in the community. A focus was on the relationships formed when assisting the young adults with ADLs and IADLs required for independent adult life. The Five Cs of Compassionate Supports model emerged to describe the participants’ experiences and the relationships formed with the young adults and their families.
