Providing Care

Local Support

  • PossAbility helps individuals recruit and train their own respite teams, #QuadSquads
  • Respite needs may include: bowel program and/or catheterization support, skin checks, showers, hospital visits, Zoom support, errands, home help, mini trips, or other specialized needs
  • #QuadSquad training is done by highly specialized medical providers who have years of experience caring for patients with SCIs
  • Most respite training occurs in Fort Wayne, Indiana
  • #QuadSquad support spots are very limited due to their intensity, and needs are met on a first-come, first-served basis

National Support

  • PossAbility provides respite retreats that serve individuals with spinal cord injuries (age 18+) as well as their caregivers
  • Lodging is bunk style
  • Retreats run for a long weekend twice a year (spring and fall)
  • Follow PossAbility’s social media pages on Facebook and Instagram to get dates for the next event
  • Retreat locations may vary but current location is in Martinsville, Indiana

Providing Support

Worldwide Support

  • Education is provided on our site: paralysis-support.org
  • Education includes video with instructions on catheterizations, bowel programs/digital stimulation, showers, dressing/undressing, skin checks, basic transfer skills, preventing pressure wounds, and more
  • Videos are done by an NP and an RN and individuals with paralysis are models for the videos
  • Real individuals and real bodies are shown in the videos (unique to our training) but heads are blurred for privacy; this allows you to see “real world” demonstrations relevant to life at home and outside of a hospital
  • Have a need that you do not see featured? Let us know and we can add it to our future video list.

I love the community we have here. You should come!
