National Amputee Peer Network
Central Texas Orthotics and Prosthetics, LP is now offering the services of Certified Peer Visitors to amputees or people faced with amputation.
A Peer Network is a number of experienced, trained amputees who provide emotional and informational support to new amputees and their families. Peers make contact through personal visitation when possible and/or by phone, e-mail, and surface mail.
A full understanding of the amputation experience and recovery process is intrinsic to the amputee. Trained peers are able to help new amputees jumpstart their transition to a new life by sharing information, serving as a model of success and by offering understanding and support.
If you or someone you know could benefit from the services of a Peer Visitor, please contact Kirk Hander or Matthew Zurcher at (979) 731-1985.
