Peer Visitors

No one is potentially in a better position to understand about living life with an amputation or supporting a person with limb loss/difference than someone who has been there. An experienced, well-trained peer can offer encouragement and information from a place, and at a pace, that an individual in this circumstance can better absorb.

This video on the value of peer support was shared with us from the New England Amputee Association, our affiliate support group in Massachusetts.
