Spinal cord injury

As specialists in nurse-led complex care in the home in the UK, Almond Care has particular expertise in delivering bespoke care and support to clients with spinal cord injuries (SCI).

Our client-centred care is provided by our own team of nursing staff and healthcare assistants who are all trained, qualified and highly experienced, giving our clients complete confidence in their ability to deal with the needs and challenges of their SCI.

We provide specialist support tailored to the client’s needs and wishes and their clinical condition, including the level of paralysis.

Our expert nursing and care staff are fully trained in the use of specialist SCI interventions and therapies including:

  • Bowel and bladder continence management including digital rectal stimulation (DRS)
  • Long-term ventilation
  • Tracheostomy care
  • Physiotherapy care/support including passive movement, standing frames and splints
  • Monitoring clients with SCIs above T6 who may be prone to Autonomic Dysreflexia (AD)
  • Nutrition management
  • Pressure sore/ulcer prevention and skin management

Our specialist carers also receive client-specific training to ensure expert delivery of a bespoke care package.

Our support goes beyond clinical care, to assist clients in achieving maximum independence and quality of life, for example by assisting with personal care, household tasks and social interaction, at a level tailored to the preferences of the client and their family.
