The goal of our Financial Aid for Attendant Care Program is to empower quadriplegics in Northern California to sustain their health, continue their participation in their families and communities, and avoid nursing home placement.
People living with quadriplegia have to attend to a wide variety of daily health care needs in order to maintain their health and well-being. InSpirit recognizes the importance of keeping our recipients aware of these needs and providing assistance whenever possible.
After being discharged from a hospital, many people with quadriplegia feel alone and isolated as they face the reality of their condition. Given this, they inevitably have many questions. InSpirit understands the challenges faced during this difficult transition. Support groups can provide guidance to people with quadriplegia and their friends, family, caregivers and others affected by their disability.
InSpirit’s support supplements the benefits our clients qualify to receive from other sources. Having up-to-date information about the programs is crucial. We do our best to keep track of the broader benefit picture.
InSpirit steps in to meet unique needs through its Special Needs Program. The program assists individuals with specific needs that help ensure their health, safety and ability to function independently.
