ParaHelp supports para and tetraplegics, as well as other people with symptoms of neurological paralysis. Our help is also directed, in particular, at people with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and spina bifida. ParaHelp is involved in community nursing throughout Switzerland.
The aim is to avoid paralysis-related complications, to maintain the person's independence as much as possible, to optimise the situation at home, and to improve the patient's quality of life until old age.
Members suffering spinal paralysis because of an accident and permanently dependent on a wheelchair receive CHF 200,000.
