Care for the Seriously Injured

Life can change in an instant.
You need a in-home care team that responds
just as quickly.

A serious vehicle or work-related accident can impact every aspect of an individual’s life. The consequences are especially challenging when an incident leads to a catastrophic brain or spinal cord injury. Although the initial period of hospitalization helps to stabilize vital signs and begin healing, once a patient returns home, the real work begins. Inspire works closely with case managers to provide a comprehensive care plan. Ongoing medical attention is often needed to address internal injuries, broken bones and wounds. For some, rehabilitative services are needed to rebuild skills and stamina, and to learn new ways to function and cope. And in cases where mobility and speech are limited, emotional support and companionship become more important than ever. All of that care needs to be coordinated and ready to go the moment the injured individual returns home, and sometimes continues indefinitely. Inspire Home Care has the expertise and the compassion to meet this, life’s ultimate challenge. Together with the patient, case manager, medical team and family, Inspire Home Care develops a comprehensive care plan to address each of the individual’s physical, emotional and practical needs. Our experienced, proactive professionals are trained to support even the most severely injured clients as they recover, encouraging their independence along the way.
