Meet Nurse Linda at the Abilities San Mateo Expo!

Posted by Reeve Staff in Daily Dose on October 15, 2018 # Health, Events

Dr. Linda Schultz, author of our interactive Ask A Nurse blog, will be at Abilities San Mateo Expo on Saturday, October 27. She will be giving a presentation titled Dealing with Practical Issues due to Spinal Cord Injury or Paralysis.

Immobility due to paralysis or limited function can affect every aspect of living. Discussing practical adaptations to daily living and personal care can help reduce restrictions and complications as well as to improve overall health. The session will open with specific activities to avoid the complications of immobility from paralysis. The emphasis of the session is about ways to improve health and deal with common problems using readily available resources and how to request additional support. A professional rehabilitation registered nurse will discuss your individual questions about mobility, bowel and bladder function, skin care, wellness and other healthcare issues. This will include ways to improve complications of aging with paralysis.

During this session, Dr. Linda Schultz will also answer questions about mobility, bowel and bladder function, and other healthcare issues. This session is open to public and free to attend for all registrants. You can register for the Abilities Expo by visiting their website here.

We hope you to see you there!
