Amputee Education and Peer Support Group Sessions

Are you a recent amputee, facing amputation, or caring for an amputee?

For amputees rehabilitation can be a challenging experience. Information, education, and support early on in the journey can help in the rehabilitation process.

Studies have shown that bringing amputees together in a group with access to a variety of health professionals with up to date information, while sharing their journey with people experiencing similar issues, will give them the ability to gain confidence and to make sound decisions.

Claire West, secretary and contact person for the Amputee Society of Nelson/Marlborough is also a Social Work student, on placement at NBPHO. Claire is developing a group for amputees and their family, whanau and carers. It is anticipated that the first group meeting will be held in October.

Enquiries are welcome by phoning Claire West on 03 5451410 or email- jcjcape@slingshot.co.nz
