What is spinal injury care?

A specialist spinal injury care assistant provides you with the flexibility you need to continue to do the things you want to do and live your life the way you choose, continuing your social and work routines and remaining in your familiar home surroundings.

Our extensively trained and highly experienced spinal care assistants can help you to remain independent after a spinal injury. Every one of our specialist spinal injury carers is trained to support you with personal care and mobility transfers including manual handling.

They can also help you with everyday activities such as driving to work or appointments, plus social visits with friends and family and helping with light housework.

If you need extra assistance with communication or you are non-verbal, a live-in spinal homecare assistant can also help you communicate with others. As you form a close working relationship with your carer, they can develop an understanding of how you communicate.

Why choose a spinal injury carer from ENA Care Group?

We have been providing specialist spinal care assistants since 1994. We believe that highly trained and professional spinal home care assistants are what make us stand out from the crowd.

We hold high expectations of our staff. All carers on our team must pass our training programme before being asked to join our team of care assistants.

Each of our spinal injury care assistants complete training that has been overseen and contributed to by our clients with spinal injuries.

Consequently our spinal injury carers are trained in manual handling, pressure sores and personal care, alongside a variety of essential spinal mobility requirements from transfer boards to hoists, ensuring your individual care needs are met.

As Bronze Members of the Spinal Injury Association (SIA), we work alongside the Association to ensure everyone affected by spinal cord injury has the right level of care and support when they come into contact with ENA.

Our specialist spinal home care assistants are assessed by an external driving company during their training to ensure a good standard and each carer undertakes thorough background checks.

As our spinal injury care assistants are employed by us, we cover holiday and sickness too, so you don’t need to worry about the legalities of employment.

Our spinal care assistants can commit to 6-12 weeks per placement if you prefer, enabling you to make plans months instead of weeks in advance.

We also offer a 24/7 fast response care service which is lead by experienced on-call care assistants who can step in at short notice should an emergency arise.

Our multi-disciplinary team of care managers work from our head office, with qualified healthcare professionals, registered nurses, stand-by care assistants and an on-call emergency service should anything go amiss.

We are also corporate members of the Spinal Injury Association and hold events to support and fundraise for the SIA.
