Catastrophic Injury Care For Alpharetta, Atlanta, DeKalb County, Douglasville, Marietta GA, and Surrounding Areas
As the name implies, catastrophic injury has permanent, far-reaching consequences. Often the result of car accidents or sports injuries—and sometimes caused by recreational activities like snowmobiling, boating, diving, and fishing—catastrophic injury includes spinal cord and brain injuries, along with damage to spinal vertebrae. It can also mean skull and spinal fractures.
Wide-Reaching Effects of Catastrophic Injury
Most often, catastrophic trauma results in injury to the cervical spine. This is the area between the base of the skull and the base of the neck. Damage to this area can cause cardiovascular issues and breathing problems. For example, a cold or respiratory flu, which most people might consider a minor inconvenience, can linger for weeks due to breathing impairments. In addition, other problems can arise, including digestive issues, bone diseases, osteoporosis, and even emotional upheaval and personality changes.
Catastrophic Care Services with ADA Housing & Medical Transportation
In everyday life, catastrophic injury can mean loss of mobility and constant wheelchair use. Simple motor functions, such as the ability to swallow or eat independently, may also be affected. Patients may require permanent catheterization and assistance with basic daily tasks such as dressing and bathing. Simple things that were taken for granted – mobility, housing, daily living, and more become significantly more challenging
Now Assured & Associates has created a revolutionary blending of services, so injured individuals can relax, work on therapy and their quality of life. Three vital services have been combined into one package– ADA housing, catastrophic care, and medical transportation. This is the only service of its kind in Georgia and a welcome relief to families trying to manage coordinating services on their own.
We look forward to meeting with your family to discuss how Assured & Associates can help with catastrophic care transportation, housing, and medical needs.
