Posted by Reeve Staff in Daily Dose on August 03, 2017 # Health, Mobility, Caregiving

Are you or somebody you know living with paralysis? The Paralysis Resource Center (PRC) offers free individualized assistance with an array of programs and resources to help you or a loved one navigate life with paralysis.

Information Specialists -- Our team of Information Specialists are the pulse of the PRC. Their goal is to listen to the needs of those living with paralysis, their family members, and their caregivers to provide individualized support by helping them navigate the vast amount of information and services available to them.

Lending Library -- Our lending library has over 5,000 paralysis-related books and videos with the latest information on causes of paralysis, secondary conditions (such as spasticity, pain, etc.), autobiographies of people living with paralysis, children's literature, and much more. Materials are free to borrow, and free to return with prepaid postage.

Peer & Family Support Program -- A cornerstone of the PRC, this national peer-to-peer mentoring program provides support, encouragement, and information to people living with paralysis and their family members from someone who has been there. Trained and certified mentors understand the day-to-day realities and long-term challenges of living with paralysis. Caregiver-to-caregiver mentoring is also available.

We also offer a roadmap to living well after paralysis in our Paralysis Resource Guide, which is available for free in print, digital or audiobook.
