Daily Activities when You Care for a Paralyzed Person at Home

Every person is unique, so it is every paralysis. Therefore, there is no unique strategy to follow when caring for a paralyzed person at home.

However, if you are a caregiver for a loved one with paralysis or paraplegia, seek advice from qualified professionals about the best way to provide care for a loved one.

Some of the typical caregiving activities you will perform when caring for a paralyzed person at home involve:

  • assisting with the person’s activities of daily living (ADLs)
  • changing position to avoid bed sores and other secondary potentially dangerous conditions exercise
  • taking care of the person’s emotional needs

Devoted Guardians'
Response to COVID-19

Devoted Guardians is actively monitoring the progression of the coronavirus, COVID-19, to ensure that we have the most accurate and latest information on the threat of the virus. As you know, this situation continues to develop rapidly as new cases are identified in our communities and our protocols will be adjusted as needed.

While most cases of COVID-19 are mild, causing only fever and cough, a very small percentage of cases become severe and may progress particularly in the elderly and people with underlying medical conditions. Because this is the primary population that Devoted Guardians serves, we understand your concerns and want to share with you how our organization is responding to the threat of COVID-19.

We are following updates and procedures from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) State Department of Health, local and county authorities, the Home Care Association of America and other agencies and resources. Our response and plans may adjust according to the recommendations from these organizations.
