Aging & Disability Resource Center - Wisconsin or by county:
Kenosha; Milwaukee; Racine; Walworth
Other Wisconsin counties -
The ADRC provides information on a broad range of programs and services, helps people understand the various long-term care options available to them, helps people apply for programs and benefits, and serves as the access point for publicly funded long-term care. These services can be provided at the ADRC, by telephone, or through a home visit, whichever is more convenient to you. 03/19/18

Certified peer visitors -
Learn how to request a peer visitor, an experienced, well-trained individual who has lived through the adjustment of limb loss/difference. A peer can offer encouragement and information from a place, and at a pace, that an individual can better absorb.

Chicago Area Amputees Support Group -
This group's members come from Lake and Cook Counties in Illinois. It is the nearest group to ours that does not have an affiliation with a hospital, prosthetist, or rehab facility.

Greater Chicago Advocates -
Using an online portal, patients and their loved ones can quickly and confidently connect with a knowledgeable healthcare advocate who has experience dealing with hospitals, insurance companies, doctors and nursing homes. These advocates cut through the red tape to get the answers you need.

Locating support groups near you -
Amputee support groups provide an invaluable place for new amputees and their family/support members to connect with others who have overcome challenges new amputees are only beginning to encounter. These groups, though, are not only for new amputees. They provide an environment with continual support, a place to ask questions and to learn from others in the group, to share successes and get support when things are not going so well.

Support groups' meeting calendar -
Find out when groups meet, and where. If you are deciding when and where you might want to attend a meeting to learn if that particular group is comfortable for you, and fits your needs, check the calendar for meetings near you.
