Salt Lake City Spinal Cord Injury Care

BrightStar Care Spinal Cord Injury - Paraplegia or Quadriplegia Care

Did you know...
that BrightStar Care Salt Lake City cares for clients with spinal cord injuries? 

Depending on the nature and the scope of the injury, individuals with spinal cord damage can have a wide range of needs. Some living with a severe injury may require around-the-clock care and highly specialized support, while others may need only basic assistance or personal care on a part-time basis.

BrightStar Care® of Salt Lake City specializes in caring for individuals living with spinal cord injury, paraplegia or quadriplegia, and our goal is to help you overcome the physical and emotional challenges you face in meeting your loved one’s unique needs.

Comprehensive Care and Support

We offer a comprehensive system of support, so you and your family can provide the best quality of care for your loved one and make the most of the time you have together.

Caring for a loved one with a spinal cord injury can be a challenge, especially the physical limitations. We provide our clients with a care plan tailor-fit to their specific needs and preferences, while also encouraging and preserving health, dignity, and happiness.

Our spinal cord injury approach focuses on:

Safe Environment
We help our clients maintain a safe environment, identifying hidden hazards in the home and making recommendations for enhanced safety measures, such as retrofitting a bathroom with stability bars.

Optimize Abilities
One of the best treatments for individuals with a spinal cord injury is the ability to enjoy the simple pleasures in life, such as going to the park or riding in the car to get ice cream. These activities can help optimize abilities, boost mood, and enhance quality of life.

Benefits of spinal cord injury care include:

  • Freedom to remain in a familiar environment
  • Ability to enjoy all the comforts of home
  • Personalized one-on-one care
  • Peace of mind
  • Reduced risk of re-hospitalizations

Spinal cord injuries are characterized by a decrease in mobility, and our care services in Salt Lake City East are specifically designed to accommodate people with disabilities.

Our qualified and compassionate home care professionals in Salt Lake City East support:

  • Daily routines to promote a soothing environment and enjoyment
  • Proper nutrition and hydration
  • Personal care for cleanliness, hygiene, and health

Our Spinal Cord Injury Caregiving Stories:

One of our recent spinal cord injury (SPI) clients was injured in a snowboarding accident 7 or 8 years ago. He loves Utah and wanted to stay indefinitely but the cold was too much for him and he is presently relocating to California.  He has been well cared for during the last 15 months by Shirley, Margie, Maria, Andie and Kim. Another client suffered her spinal cord trauma three decades ago and went on to marry and raise a family of 4 sons who are now grown.  Many CNAs for BrightStar Care have cared for this Murray client during her time with us. Finally our SPI client in Draper was actually one of our first clients.  His car accident happened almost two decades ago. Nurses and CNAs assist in the morning and evening seven days a week.  This client enjoys his five (count them) cats and spends time each day at his computer.  He moved here from Georgia to be near family. BrightStar Care does very well in our role as caregivers for spinal cord injury clients. 

In 2021 we plan to add many more Spinal Cord Injury clients to our service. If you or someone you love has experienced an SPI, contact us today at 801-559-3999.
