Spinal Home Help – Gold Coast Connect Group
If you live on the Gold Coast and are struggling to adjust to life after spinal cord injury or just want someone to talk to, support is only around the corner.
The connect group will run in the 3rd week of each month.
The group will be for people with spinal cord injury only, to create a space that is patient-focused and aimed at sharing experiences dealing with an SCI from a personal perspective.
The group will provide a welcoming space for spouses, family, and friends to discuss their struggles and knowledge of experiencing a spinal cord injury second hand, to ask questions and to spend time with fellow carers.
As Lourens another half, she has lived the experience of being the spouse of someone with a spinal cord injury.
Julie also operates a Facebook support page for spouses of people with SCI
