Spinal Cord Injury Care

At HFH Healthcare, we provide exceptional at-home care to those who have sustained a spinal cord injury.

With our specialised nurse-led care and personal approach, our spinal injury carers are dedicated to meeting the specific clinical needs of each individual, no matter how complex.

Understanding Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries can result from various causes, including traumatic accidents, falls, sports-related injuries, medical conditions, and degenerative diseases. These injuries can have a significant impact on a person’s mobility, sensation, and overall quality of life. It’s important to recognize the different types of spinal cord injuries to tailor our care and support accordingly:

Complete Spinal Cord Injury: This type of injury involves a total loss of sensory and motor function below the level of injury and results in paraplegia or tetraplegia. Those who suffer a complete spinal cord injury typically require 24-hour assistance.

Incomplete Spinal Cord Injury: With this type of injury, some sensory and motor function remains below the level of injury. The extent can vary greatly, depending on the specific location and severity of the injury.

Nurse-led Spinal Injury Care

All our complex spinal injury carers are overseen by our highly skilled nurses who conduct regular reviews and assessments to ensure the safety, quality, and effectiveness of all care provided.

They work closely with our clients, their families, and the in-home care team involved, to ensure a coordinated and comprehensive approach. This ensures that our care plans are constantly updated to meet the evolving needs of our clients.

Living with a spinal cord injury often requires specialised care procedures. Our spinal injury carers are clinically trained in procedures necessary to support an individual’s complex needs resulting from their spinal cord injury.
