About Spinal Injury
When the spinal cord gets damaged in some way, this is what we call a spinal injury. It can happen as a result of many things such as falls or accidents. It can also come about as a result of non-traumatic injuries such as infections or diseases. Because the spinal cord is connected to the brain, it’s vital to the rest of the body, our movements and basic functions that we all take for granted.
Therefore, when the spinal cord is injured in some way, the connection between the brain and the rest of the body is weakened and disrupted, which can lead to problems with movements, loss of sensation and many other things. Injuries vary and these side effects are not necessarily permanent. It all depends on the type of injury and what the doctor tells you. But total damage to the spinal cord is likely to result in permanent problems.
It’s not uncommon for things like muscle spasms, hypothermia and hyperthermia. Not being able to sweat makes it harder for the individual to control their temperature. What people struggle with most commonly is the loss of mobility or limited movement. It causes problems for the individual and can sometimes place a strain on those closest to them. It’s why finding the right care is so important. We understand that and we aim to provide the care that’s suitable and appropriate for each individual we work with.
The Care and Support We Can Offer
Here at Home Caring, we have a full understanding of what experiencing this kind of medical problem is like. Having worked with many people experiencing spinal injuries, we understand the task of helping you or a loved one going through this. It’s always our main aim to offer supportive and relevant care that improves lives for the better, and that’s what we’re committed to doing for you. We know you can face real difficulties when you are hit by a spinal injury and we’ll aim to soften the blow as much as possible.
Supporting family members and loved ones who are struggling to cope with the situation is a big part of this. Each individual is impacted by the injury and we aim to help everyone deal with it better by providing that support when you need it. Of course, each situation is different and that’s something we’ll always take into account to ensure your lives are made easier.
Whether you require physical support, mental support or medical support, we are able to provide you with the kind of care and attention you need. It’s something we’ve been doing for a long time, so our experience can be trusted to produce the kinds of outcomes you’ve been searching for. We’ll ensure you or your loved one is treated with dignity at all times as we provide our care services.
Trained Carers Who Always Do Right by Care Recipients
All of the carers that work for Home Caring are trained to deal with situations like yours. They know what it takes to offer you the right kind of care, and they always strive to provide it to the very best of their ability. They’re trained to offer the highest standards of care imaginable, offering a service that’s discreet and tailored to your specific needs. Each day, our wonderful carers will care for you in a way that makes a difference to you.
We’re always careful to ensure our care services are provided in a compassionate way. They’ll provide you with the practical and medical help you need when you’re struggling with the new reality of a spinal injury, but their efforts won’t stop there. They can also help with basic day to day things, such as preparing food and getting things done around the house. It’s often the smallest things that have the biggest impact on families.
Having the companionship that comes with using our services makes a difference too. You’ll have someone there to offer you emotional support when you need it most and they’ll offer you the chance to talk to someone about everything that you’ve been going through when you want to talk. We know that an injury like this brings a lot of uncertainty and confusion, but we’ll do everything possible to help you through that.
Your Needs Come First
The needs of the people we’re working for always come first. We’ll consult with you before care begins to get a clear idea of what kind of help you need going forward. Doing this will help us to understand better what we can do for you and tailor our service accordingly. Our carers will listen to your needs and be responsive to everything they tell you. We don’t take a one size fits all approach here at Home Caring, so you can rely on us to provide you with the right kind of care in any situation.
When you find a carer, you have every right to expect the very best from them. After all, you’re inviting them into your home. We’ll always treat you and those around you with care and respect, making sure we take everyone’s needs into consideration when offering our services. It’s in your best interests and ours that we speak to you about those needs before care starts.
Our experienced team understand that your needs matter more than anything else possibly could. They’re trained and experienced enough to know how to respond to a wide variety of needs, no matter what they are. They’ve provided this kind of care to many people before and they’ll be more than happy to help and your family out in whatever way they can.
Care That Adapts When Your Needs Change
With problems like spinal injuries, we know that your needs can change a lot over time. As a result, the care you receive from us will change as well. It’s vital to us that you get the right kind of care at each stage of your injury, no matter what happens next. We will always be alert to changing needs and happy to discuss them with you so that you can feel comfortable with the care you’re receiving.
As stated above, our carers have worked with people in this situation many times before, so they’re aware of how needs change over time and how the care they offer has to adapt as well. Whether that means the practican and medical care changing or introducing more emotional support when you need that; we’ll be able to provide you with exactly the kind of care you require at any given time.
All of our care providers have the skills needed to offer the kind of care you need as things develop for you. They’ll assist you throughout and be there for moral and emotional support when you’re struggling with that side of things. When we first talk to you, our carers will explain even more about the care they can provide you with and you’ll have the chance to ask questions and explain your care requirements.
Finding the right care support for yourself or a relative with a spinal injury can be very difficult. You want to make sure the care you get is tailored to your needs, and that’s what we offer here at Home Caring.
