Černá, Kateřina ; Hájková, Vanda (advisor) ; Zakouřilová, Hana (referee)
The bachelor thesis focuses on the significance of personal assistance for individuals with physical disabilities in supporting independent living. The author initially delves into the theoretical definition of spinal cord injury in the cervical spine area from a health perspective, followed by a social perspective, where the self-concept of the individual and the regaining of independence after spinal cord injury are discussed. In the third chapter, the focus shifts to the implementation of independent living for individuals with spinal cord injuries and further defines the significance of personal assistance as a means of independent living. The aim of the bachelor thesis is to describe the experience of an individual with tetraplegia utilizing personal assistance for independent living. Authentic testimonies from four respondents with spinal cord injuries were obtained through the selection of a qualitative methodological approach and the method of semi-structured interviews. The collected data was subsequently analyzed using phenomenological interpretative analysis. The research findings provide conclusions regarding the overall scope and nature of personal assistance needed for independent living, as well as the methods and current possibilities of utilizing personal assistance. The research...

Wodere, Veronika ; Hájková, Vanda (advisor) ; Zakouřilová, Hana (referee)
This thesis focuses on the topic of the transition of people with disabilities from the school environment to working life. The thesis is divided into a theoretical and a practical part.

Krčilová, Radka ; Hájková, Vanda (advisor) ; Zakouřilová, Hana (referee)
Muscular dystrophy is a serious congenital disease that is currently incurable. There are many types of this disease, and one of its forms is Duchenne muscular dystrophy, which mainly affects boys and shortens their lives to a few decades. The absence of dystrophin in the muscles is manifested by the weakening of the muscles and their gradual loss. Boys soon lose the ability to walk and other momentum. At the same time, heart function, breathing, and bone quality are compromised. Such a life is not easy for a boy. Fatigue, lethargy, frustration come along with puberty. They have to get used to frequent medical examinations and checks, stretching exercises, various rehabilitations and stays in the spa. He needs to start asking for help and gradually asking for it more often and in many ways, eventually in almost all of them. Not only he needs psychological support, but also the caring family. The work seeks an answer to the question of what the quality of life with this disease can be, how it is experienced by the young person himself, and how it is seen by someone involved in the care. It describes this quality of life in different time periods gradually. Answers were also sought to the question of whether more could be done for the quality of life of these boys, e.g. through greater awareness of...
