How Do You Care for Someone with Spinal Cord Injury

Staying at home means minimum changes in the person’s existing routine or lifestyle. A caregiver needs to ensure that the person with spinal cord injury (SCI) receives necessary care at home.

Investigate your loved one’s recovery and therapy options. Unfortunately, the perfect spinal cord injury therapy does not exist. However, high-quality treatment and care can help prevent injury aggravation, alleviate the side effects of spinal cord injury, help improve your loved one’s quality of life.

Also, make modifications at home, such as installing ramps or wheelchair lifts, widening doorways, etc., to accommodate your loved one’s mobility limitations.

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.
