  1. Personal assistance : its effect on the long-term health of a rehabilitation hospital population.

    Article - En anglais

    After discharge from a rehabilitation hospital, persons with severe disabilities may not be able to maintain health effectively without adequate personal assistance with activities of daily living.

    Techniques of qualitative analysis were used to assess interview results based on the observations of 41 physicians, physical therapists, occupational therapists, social workers, and nurses in five rehabilitation hospitals.

    A positive relationship was found between the adequacy of personal assistance and the ability of individuals disabled primarily by stroke, spinal cord injury, or traumatic brain injury to maintain good physical and mental health.
