Spinal Cord Injury (SCI)

People’s First Choice Australia is proud to introduce our services for people with spinal injuries and acquired brain injury.

People’s First Choice Australia is a registered NDIS provider supporting people with spinal cord damage and other physical disabilities, permanent or temporary, through a range of specialist services.

We work in close partnership with you to build a model of care that suits these complex needs and one that is continuously reviewed in order to ensure that it suits your individual and specific requirements.

Our highly skilled and experienced care team understand and implement best practice when caring for you. They are experienced in the use of manual handling equipment, positioning, bowel and bladder care, skin checks and understand the risk factors and management of autonomic dysreflexia.

PFCA works collaboratively as part of a dynamic Therapy Team to ensure our care teams understand ‘how’ and ‘why specific strategies are implemented to manage and diffuse escalations/fluctuations in behaviour.  Our highly experienced team will support you to achieve greater function, independence, and ability to participate in things that are important to you – such as your community, family life, leisure activities, education, and work.

Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) is damage to the spinal cord, which sits inside the bones of our spine and controls and coordinates movement and feeling in all parts of our body from the neck down. Living with Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) can be life-changing with significant impact on you and your family.

If you or someone you care for is affected by a spinal cord injury, trying to find the resources and assistance to manage can be overwhelming. You are eligible for the NDIS.  Find out what the requirements are and how to find reliable support.

Spinal Cord Injury and the NDIS

Under the NDIS people with a disability are able to access funding to purchase the supports they need to live the life they choose. As a NDIS participant, you decide who provides the help and supports that will help you meet these goals.

If you are between the ages of 7 and 65, have Australian residency, and have a permanent and significant disability such as spinal cord damage, you may be eligible to sign up for the NDIS. You can access a NDIS Eligibility Access Checklist here https://www.ndis.gov.au/applying-access-ndis/am-i-eligible
