When you leave a rehabilitation (rehab) center for your
home after a
spinal cord injury (SCI), you need to have your home
ready for your special needs. Following are some of the adaptations and
adaptive equipment you may need. Talk with your rehab team about what you will
need specifically and the best way to proceed.
For more information on adapting your lifestyle and home,
contact any of the groups or Internet sites listed in the Other Places to Get
Help section of the topic Living With a Spinal Cord Injury.
