Living Day-to-Day Life as an AmputeeJanuary 9th, 2013 | Posted by in Nursing Home | Short Term Rehab
Losing a limb may be one of the hardest things that anyone can go through in life. What can be even harder is adjusting to your everyday life after your amputation. It’s not going to be easy, but we’ve put together a list to help ease you into your post-amputation life.
Amputation Therapy & Training – The first thing you should do is get yourself signed up for some Amputation therapy and training sessions. We can help get you started by putting you in touch with our experts who help you through the physical process, as well as the emotional process of losing a limb.
Protect Your Other Limbs – Chances are if you lost a limb due to natural causes, it may have been due to a disease that cut off circulation to the extremities. If you’ve already lost one limb, the risk is higher for the disease to spread to another limb. It is important to keep in good health, make regular visits to the doctor, and monitor your sugar intake in order to avoid another loss of a limb.
Make Life Easier for Yourself – It’s going to be hard to adapt to everyday life after the loss of a limb. To make things a bit easier for yourself, you should consider remodeling your home so that it is wheelchair accessible. You can also apply for a handicap parking permit, which will give you the closest parking spots available.
