Local Amputee Support

If you or a loved one has suffered from amputation, help is just around the corner.  Arkansas is home to the American Amputee Foundation as well as several support groups.  I highly recommend that you become a member of the Amputee Coalition of America too.  If you still cannot find the help and support you need, contact me directly and I will help you find someone to talk to.  In addition to life care planning services, I also provide care management for those with catastrophic injury and illness so I have many contacts within the amputation and prosthetic communities.

Below are several support group locations for amputees and their loved ones:
