Rehab & Transition Home

Transitioning after spinal cord injury (SCI)

Every SCI journey is unique, just like every person. There’s no one-size-fits-all path. Following your initial injury, you’ll spend time in acute care, potentially followed by transfer to an in-patient rehabilitation center. Some individuals may go directly home, to chronic care, or long-term care facilities. Rehabilitation itself can vary depending on your specific needs and the resources available in your location. The type of injury, your overall health before the injury, and your personal goals all play a role in shaping your path.

At SCIO, we understand the complexities of transitioning back to community after an SCI. We’re here to support you every step of the way, with programs and services designed to meet your needs and goals. We believe in the power of community, support, and access to the information and resources you need to thrive, including finding meaningful employment. Schedule a consultation with a Peer Mentor today to discuss your specific needs and goals. Explore our Service Navigation resources to learn more about available programs and support, including employment services through Accessible Employment Services. Contact us with any questions you may have. We’re here to help.
