Who comes to your support group meetings?
Amputees Together is an amputee support group whose membership consists of individuals living with upper and/or lower extremity limb loss, their family and friends, and interested healthcare professionals.
We are a close network of friends who share at least one important thing in common: the experience of limb loss. Our meetings are a place where members can find comfort, or provide it to someone else.
What do you do at your meetings?
Expert guest speakers present on various issues related to limb loss, such as pain management, nutrition, and even tips on going back to work. The presentations are interactive-we encourage members to ask questions and provide input. Of course, there’s plenty of time for socializing over a nice meal.
Can I bring someone with me to the meetings?
Yes, we encourage our members to bring along anyone in there support system to the meetings.
I do not get my prosthetics from Westcoast Brace and Limb, can I still go to the meetings?
Yes. We encourage all amputees to come to the meetings for support, education and fun regardless of who you choose as a prosthetic provider.
What if I can’t make it to the meetings?
Events, such as picnics, bowling nights, and fundraisers, provide members with a unique opportunity to socialize in the community. Online support keeps our limb loss network strong and connects members who are unable to attend support group meetings in person.
Do you provide support for family members and caregivers?
Just like a new amputee, family members and caregivers need support too. Amputees Together of Florida, Inc. will provide support for family members and/or caregivers. We will provide the opportunity to speak with an experienced family member/caregiver.
