Client Services and Coordination
The goal of Client Support and Service Coordination is to ensure that individuals and families of those with spinal cord injury and similar physical disabilities and their families (consumers) receive the support they need after injury, to transition effectively from hospital to the community, and to ensure they are able to achieve their optimal level of integration in the community.
This work is conducted by SCI Alberta’s Client Services Coordinators (CSCs). They work directly with consumers and their families, beginning at the time of injury, to identify unmet needs, help access services, and set goals for the future. Their work is critical to ensuring that consumers avoid confusion, frustration, and hopelessness as they undertake the daunting task of adjusting to life with an SCI. CSCs remain available to consumers as they age with a disability, helping them to adjust and access necessary services.

Residential Access Modification Program (RAMP)
The Residential Access Modification Program (RAMP) provides grants (up to $7,500 per person each year, or up to $15,000 per person within 10 years) to help lower-income Albertans with mobility challenges modify their homes so they can enter and move around more easily.
SCI Alberta helps people with spinal cord injuries apply for RAMP. Applicants schedule an appointment with a consultant, who will help them understand and determine eligibility, as well as navigate the application process.
