There is no comparable understanding other than someone with lived and shared experience.
Amputees NSW provides peer support from volunteers, as well as trained experts and advisors who can refer you to somebody who will listen and help. We offer:
When you can understand your own health, it is much easier to articulate to others what your needs are and be active and feel well generally.
When you better understand the goals of your Health team, this can allow you to be more decisive about your goals and ensure an appropriate mix of supports are involved to help you achieve them.
