Welcome to 2019!!! We have exciting news to share. Starting this month we will be hosting an amputee support group in Ascension Parish. This is a free community service. You do not have to be a patient at Excel Rehab to join.
As we treated our patients and listened to their stories, we decided to see what was available to meet this population's needs in our community. We found no support groups in Gonzales or in the parish for amputees. We made a decision last year to meet this need. Our LCSW will be leading the group. But remember, support groups are dependent upon it's members' attendance and active participation to be effective, to be supportive and to meet the needs of it's members.
We understand that having an amputation can be a Life Changing event. Adapting to assistive devices such as walkers, wheelchairs and canes or learning to utilize a prosthetic device can bring many challenges. When you are a part of a supprotive group, you can learn from others how they coped, how they adapted etc.
We need YOU! If you would like to join, please call us at 225-644-0290. You can also register for the Facebook Event on our page at https://www.facebook.com/ExcelRehabServices/. We will need your name & contact information. The service is free. We do ask that you register. Space is limited.
So please join us & lets get #AMPEDUP!
