I am currently a 23-year-old C-5 quadriplegic and college student. I’m blessed that my insurance covers enough hours for me to have a night and morning nurses. Unfortunately, I’m unable to drive myself so my family members (usually my dad) or friends have to drive me everywhere whether it be school, doctors appointments, or even leisurely activities. It’s been very hard for me to find help during the day hours. I don’t need a nurse but I do need someone capable of driving, adjusting, and emptying my bag. I guess an aide. My question for everyone is how do you find help and where do you go to find it?
