Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries and paralysis often require many accommodations to be made for the victim. Medical devices may be required, such as wheelchairs or other assistive devices, in order for the victim to live as normal a life as possible. Since spinal cord injuries are permanent, there are many health obstacles that a victim may face after the initial accident. Long-term care may be needed to ensure the highest quality of life possible.
Even minor brain injuries can require extensive medical care and rehabilitation. Whether the victim requires assistance with daily tasks or needs full-time care due to extensive brain damage, our firm can assist clients in understanding their options for caring for an injured loved one. Long-term care planning may need to be accomplished in order to ensure that the brain injury victim will be thoroughly cared for.
Nursing Home Care
In some cases, an ill, injured or aging family member needs around-the-clock care and monitoring. Nursing homes are equipped to handle nearly all types of health needs and can be a beneficial place for loved ones. Our firm, familiar with handling nursing home abuse and neglect cases, can help you understand the ins and outs of nursing homes, as well as what to look for when choosing a long-term care facility.
