Spina bifida is a birth defect where most children have no symptoms or problems. With severe cases of spina bifida there can be curvature of the spine and nerve damage as well as foot and hip deformities that can limit mobility. Also, there can be a buildup of fluids on the brain that can cause seizures and intellectual disabilities.
Ace Human Services direct support persons provide complex personal care and support to the individual that has spina bifida. We work closely with the clients and families to design and deliver personalized care plans suited to address individual needs. We promote physical and emotional well-being, with an understanding that everyone’s daily needs are different. You can trust our reliable and well-trained caregivers to provide experienced, compassionate care. It’s not our intention to replace caring family and friends, but to provide help and relief to committed family members.
We promote our client’s physical and emotional well-being. Personal care services are provided and encouraged to assist the client with looking and feeling their best. We understand the importance of maintaining the dignity and privacy of our clients, which is why our direct support persons are specially trained to assist with bathing, grooming, dressing, mobility assistance and transfers and other activities of daily living. We will also explore the individual’s strength and encourage those self-care activities that are appropriate to facilitate. For a holistic plan we encourage activities outside the home in order to provide appropriate stimulation, alleviate boredom and facilitate growth experiences.
