A charity has warned that one in five people who suffer a spinal cord injury will be put in a elderly care home, regardless of their age.
Some spinal cord injury patients reported poor quality of life and other physical injuries including pressure sores, infections and broken bones.
They also reported a lack of independence, damage to relationships, isolation and boredom.
Participants in the report said that care home staff were regularly not able to help them out of bed until midday, and in some cases people were left in bed all day if the home was short staffed.
