Nursing home patient here… Anyone else?

Nursing home patient here… Anyone else?

Posted by Beka_ on Aug 22, 2017 2:31 am

 17 years ago, when I was 21 years old, I sustained a SCI (c-4, c-5, incomplete) from a diving accident.  I'm 38 years old now, and for the last 7  years I've lived in a nursing home. I'm the youngest resident in the facility, and have been for the entirety of my stay. So I was just curious, does anyone else in this forum live in a nursing home?  If so, I would love to talk.

Hello Beka,

I lived in an establishment specializing in people paralyzed in France, it was a traumatic experience because nothing worked well ...

I felt like an animal ...

I apologize for my English

Hi Beka,
I have worked with Centers of Independent living which have been able to assist individuals to move out of a nursing home and into the community through the program Money Follows the Person.  I’m not sure of the criteria needed but it may be helpful to speak with someone there. 
The Peer and Family Support Program has many peer mentors helping peers through listening, sharing experiences and providing resources of information.  Where our peer mentors may not live in a nursing home they will be willing to talk if you like. If you would like to be matched with a peer mentor please go to the following link to request a mentor: https://www.christopherreeve.org/get-support/get-a-peer-mentor
Our mentoring and publications are free.
Wishing You All The Best!!!
Todd
