How to Find Support
Whether you, a friend, or family member is facing amputation/limb loss, the Amputee Coalition offers several ways to find useful information, support and encouragement when you need it most.
Request a peer visit
Receiving support from someone who has successfully gone through a similar life event can be a turning point in the recovery process. The Amputee Coalition has trained over 1,000 volunteers with limb loss and their family members to meet with amputees/family in times of need. Peer visits take place everyday across the county, in person, on the phone, and via email. If you would like to request a visit from one of our certified peer visitors, please complete the request form and we will have someone contact you as soon as possible.
Find a support group
Amputee support groups are a vital part of the recovery process and provide an invaluable place for new amputees/family to connect with others who have overcome similar challenges. The Amputee Coalition has over 260 registered support groups throughout the country.
