Specialised Services for people with Spinal Cord Injury

Specialised Services for people with Spinal Cord Injury

Since it commenced in 1991, AQA Qualcare has had a strong commitment to providing specialised supports to people with a Spinal Cord Injury. Over half of the people we provide with personal care and support have a spinal injury.  The Qualcare team has established strong relationships with relevant service providers who are able to contribute specialist knowledge in this area such as Austin Hospital, Royal Talbot Rehabilitation Centre, Spinal Outreach & Support Team and AQA Victoria's Spire service.

Our Disability Support Workers receive training that is tailored specifically to the needs of people with spinal injuries.  This includes manual handling, bowel and urinary care, recognising dysreflexia, and independence support.
