The loss of a limb can be very difficult to come to terms with. It can mean changes to your whole life and affect your physical, emotional and mental health. These changes take time to adjust to and will be different for each person. During your stay at Parkwood Institute, you will meet other people with amputations. Many people find meeting others who have experienced a similar loss helpful. You can discuss your concerns, fears and frustrations with someone who understands.
It is our sincere hope that your stay as an inpatient on the amputee program will help you begin the process of embracing your new life.
Our goal is to help you become more independent and leave our program with a higher quality of life.
