Speaking to another amputee can help amputees understand the pathways ahead. Peer Support links individuals (and their families) pre or post amputation with trained amputees who have experienced living with and adapting to limb loss. Our program is designed to match members with someone of a similar age, level of amputation and gender.
Losing a limb/s can lead to a range of physical and emotional changes and challenges for you and your loved ones. Speaking with another amputee can play an important role in your preparation, recovery and rehabilitation of limb loss. In fact, speaking to someone who personally understands what it means to lose a limb can often be a great relief; you can ask questions and discuss issues that only someone who has been through limb loss can answer.
