Providing Traumatic Injury Care Services to Charleston and the Surrounding Areas

Traumatic injury doesn't just affect the individuals who need care. A serious injury can change the lives of families as well.

After an accident or serious injury, your loved one may require physical or cognitive rehabilitation and post-traumatic care to recover. Traumatic injuries result from events such as falls, auto accidents, altercations and environmental hazards. They can have significant complications and long-term effects requiring constant care and attention.

FirstLight caregivers can help with activities of daily living for individuals who need traumatic injury care at home following a brain injury, neck or spinal cord trauma or a musculoskeletal injury.
