Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation
Paralysis Resource Guide
Here’s a (free!) new resource for your clients: The third edition of the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation’s Paralysis Resource Guide can be accessed via smartphone and tablets/e-readers. The reference starts with a Portraits section — biographies of people living well with paralysis. After that come descriptions of conditions that can cause paralysis, followed by a health management section that discusses such topics as conditions secondary to paralysis (autonomic dysreflexia, deep vein thrombosis, urinary tract infections). The guide also discusses difficult realities such as insurance options, and gives advice on everyday challenges such as travel, caregiving, active living and tools & technology. The Guide is also available as a pdf or as a hard copy.
