Suddenly everything changes – your accident or illness can turn the lives of your relatives upside down. Nothing is quite as it was before.
You, too, are bound to get caught up in their concerns. Forced to come to terms with the accident, you must now examine its impact on your own life, as well as on your relationships. Perspectives for a new way of life must be developed and explored.
We at the Swiss Paraplegic Centre provide you with support during this process, and whenever possible, open new doors. One-to-one discussions are vitally important – for you and for us. We’re here to talk whenever you like – you'll find our contact information on the bottom of this page.
Medical information for relatives
Please note that in accordance with adult protection law, we may only provide information to relatives if authorised to do so by patients with sufficient mental capacity to make medical decisions. For patients lacking the required mental capacity, information will be conveyed to the patient’s authorised representative, as well as to the patient’s relatives if authorised by the latter.
A relatives’ table is now available from 2 pm in the Restaurant Centro of the Swiss Paraplegic Centre, Nottwil. This is where you will have the opportunity to talk freely to people in a similar situation to you.
In addition, we would like to invite you to our relatives’ dinners in the Restaurant Centro of the Swiss Paraplegic Centre, Nottwil. The aim of these evenings is to be able to talk to each other, to learn from each other, to relax, to obtain answers to questions, etc.
