December 7, 2011 (FPRC) -- Walden, NY - Dr. Douglas Winslow Cooper, author, caregiver, and retired physicist, has established a Web site to facilitate sharing of information regarding the care of quadriplegic patients in their homes. Dr. Cooper’s wife has been bedridden for seventeen years, quadriplegic and ventilator-dependent for the past seven. The Coopers have benefited from around-the-clock nursing, which Dr. Cooper manages. The site’s goal is to aid others in comparable situations.


Dr. Cooper opens the site [http://quadriplegiccaresite.com] as follows:

“Welcome to our site concerning quadriplegic care at home. Issues we will be discussing include: medical home care, private home care, special issues related to disabled spouses, being successful patient advocates, and --- in many cases --- our reflections concerning multiple sclerosis diagnosis and multiple sclerosis treatment.

“At the outset, note that this is not intended to be medical advice. I am a retired Ph.D. physicist, not an M.D. physician. I will be telling you what has and has not worked for my wife, Tina Su Cooper, who was paraplegic from 1994-2004 and quadriplegic, ventilator-dependent, fed and medicated through a gastric tube, from 2004 to the present. She has received successful quadriplegic care in our home with round-the-clock nursing paid for by my IBM retiree medical benefits for the past seven years.”

“Quadriplegic care has medical, psychological, logistical, and financial implications. Pressure sores [bed sores] and respiratory and system infections, depression, lack of personnel or supplies or equipment, poverty or bankruptcy … all threaten the patient. All have serious consequences for the caregivers. All are topics appropriate to this site.”


The articles initially available at the site are:

- A Tale of Two Patients
- Quadriplegic Care
- Giving Quadriplegic Care
- Quadriplegic Care at Home
- Quadriplegic Care References

Additional material will be added to the site. Comments will be welcomed and addressed.
