Family Responses After a Spinal Cord Injury
Q: What personal support was most helpful to you?
The first days after injury are extremely stressful for the patient and family. Major support from family members is what keeps most people going. Faith and helpful friends also play a role. Case managers, nurses and doctors are also very important sources of support during the first days in the hospital.
We asked 100 men and women living with spinal cord injuries to tell us about the personal support that was most helpful to them. The videos below contain their answers.
