Certified Amputee Peer Visitor

Peer Visitor Program

Peer visitor training that is specific to people with amputations has started at GF Strong Rehab Centre.  In December 2006, thirteen people attended the one-day training session and received recognition to be called a ‘Certified Amputee Peer Visitor’.  The training session covers: communication, listening, do’s and don’ts, responsibilities, privacy, advice giving, and sensitive situations.

‘The Amputee Peer Visitor Training Program’ is copyrighted by the Amputee Coalition of America, and is now being offered at select rehabilitation centres in Canada.
