  • United Spinal Association Disability Specific COVID-19 resources/information

    United Spinal Association (USA) has developed a page on their website with resources and information specific to people with SCI/D. Keep in mind that anyone with a SCI/D join USA for free, and this also gives you a free subscription to "New Mobility" magazine.

    You can find the resource page here: https://unitedspinal.org/covid-19-information/

    The SCI-Nurses are advanced practice nurses specializing in SCI/D care. They are available to answer questions, provide education, and make suggestions which you should always discuss with your physician/primary health care provider before implementing. Medical diagnosis is not provided, nor do the SCI-Nurses provide nursing or medical care through their responses on the CareCure forums.

    Also this information that I received from USA to post here:

    As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, United Spinal Association is concerned about the risk of interrupted home care services for people with disabilities. We’re asking U.S. residents whose homecare services have been affected by COVID-19 to contact United Spinal’s Resource Center, letting us know about your health care challenges and success stories. While we may not be able to resolve all individual access issues, we will work to assist individuals and in keeping governors, state officials, and legislators informed of changing home care needs.

    The Resource Center staff are available Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET. You can reach us by phone at 1 800-962-9629, or by submitting your experiences at the following link: Resource Center. Please note that this is not an emergency service and we’re unable to provide specific medical advice.
