No matter what the cause, limb loss is a significant event in someone’s life. It may well be the most difficult or traumatic experience they face. And then, they are faced with the long, often trying process of adjusting to a new normal. And part of that new normal may be adjusting to new work abilities and the financial concerns that come with a serious medical issue.
Neither you nor the person who has lost a limb is in this alone; there are tens of dozens of support programs out there to help provide support. Whether you or your loved one needs help financially, obtaining medical equipment, or finding local programs to help you adjust physically, there is someone ready to help.
