My 22 year old son was injured in an ATV accident on 9-1-05. We are told that he is a T12/ L1 Complete.
I understand most of what the Dr's have been telling us about the injury itself, but they aren't telling us much about the road ahead. I have been doing as much research as possible on the internet and reserved several books from our Public Library, but would really like to hear what others have to offer in the form of advice.
Specifically I am interested in information about what to expect in the rehab facility and after he is released from rehab. He will be staying with my husband and me and I will be his caregiver if needed.
I am also interested in getting information about equipment that we may need to have when he comes home to make things easier for everyone. Since he had no health insurance when the accident happened, we applied for Medicaid (were told the only way the rehab would accept him is if there was a pending Medicaid application). I am not sure what Medicaid will cover as far as equipment.
We are in the Cleveland, Ohio area if that matters.
Thanks in advance for your help.
