Impact of housing spinal injured people in care homes
Every eight hours someone is paralysed by a spinal cord injury. 20% of these people will be discharged from hospital in to a care home, regardless of their age, because they do not have housing in the community that meets their new needs. People have been telling Aspire for years that living in a care home has a devastating impact on the lives of spinal cord injured people. Lives are put at risk by unsuitable care and facilities, and by suicidal feelings due to poor quality of life.
