Former Insurance Defense Attorney Turned Personal Injury Attorney

Your role caring for a loved one with spinal cord injury

When you have a loved one who has suffered a spinal cord injury, you will undoubtedly struggle with offering care. You will likely want to do all you can to make them as comfortable as possible and help them through their rehabilitation, but you might also worry that what you are doing might further hurt them. It's never easy to care for a loved one so here's what your role will be in this situation.

Your role in caring for a loved one who has suffered a serious injury is critical to their recovery. You will be the focal point of their life from here on out, which means that your stress levels will increase. The most important thing you need to remember is to make time for yourself each day, even if it's just for 20 minutes or so. This will help you regroup and refresh your mind.

One of the jobs you will need to perform when caring for a loved one with a spinal cord injury is keeping them comfortable. They will be in a lot of pain and any amount of medication might not help them rest comfortably.

You should also do your best to help the loved one avoid suffering from depression. If they are homebound, they likely will have trouble seeing the positives in life. Try to do all you can to make them smile, laugh and enjoy the little things in life.

Caring for a loved one with a spinal cord injury can be daunting. The more questions you ask and research you perform will help you understand what is needed to help them on the road to recovery.
