The Quadriplegic Centre provides a community nursing and support service.
Clinical nurses who specialise in the management of spinal injuries and disease provide this service to over 500 people, many of whom do not have access to any community accommodation services.
Our goal is to maintain our clients’ independence and minimise their hospitalisation by using early intervention strategies and liaising with community care providers and family members.
- Two full-time registered nurses manage the service from the Quadriplegic Centre, which covers all metropolitan areas. The nurses visit country patients during the year extending as far north as Geraldton and south to Albany.
- The successful treatment of patients in the home reduces both the incidence and cost associated with acute tertiary admissions.
The service is available Monday to Friday each week (excluding public holidays). For more information, please contact:
