Amputee Program

Want to Help Seniors?

Please help us grow our network by volunteering for support groups.

This program is designed for
persons who have experienced the loss of all or part
of a limb. The limb loss may be result of birth
defect or congenital malformation, skeletal
deficiency or from amputation by trauma or surgery.
The amputee team is skilled in addressing the issues
of vascular necrosis, contractures, edema or swelling
of the remaining limb portion, phantom pain, painful
neuromas and nutritional needs. Teaching revolves
around self care skills, wheelchair level mobility,
prosthetic ambulation training, hygiene and care of
the residual limb, management of discomfort and
community re-entry.
