PQSA’s Community Lifestyle Advisors are a team of three highly experienced nurses who provide education, guidance, support and advice to people with SCI and their families. They have become well recognised in the community, forming strong relationships with those they visit.
With vast experience providing advice on skin, continence and other medical issues; they can also recommend equipment, nutrition, resources and liaison with medical or allied health services.
Currently, the CLAs are only able to offer their service to homes across metropolitan Adelaide, avoiding long hospital stays for many clients. PQSA has set a goal to offer the CLA service throughout regional South Australia. With a target of $70,000, PQSA looks forward to supporting many more South Australians with spinal cord injury via this critical service.
