About The Peer Mentor Program
We have uncovered many challenges and needs amputees face every day. After all, being, let alone caring for, an amputee is not just about providing a limb. It is a mental and physical process that lasts an entire lifetime. In response to the challenges our patients experience we have developed a program based on the experience of becoming an amputee and the process of getting a limb.
Our Peer Mentors are knowledgeable and passionate individuals who are amputees themselves. They truly are amputees caring for amputees, providing comfort, education and care during the process. Our Peer Mentors meet with patients before their amputation to discuss the process, answer questions, provide educational materials and give helpful advice about the life changes experienced before, during and after amputation.
