Limbs 4 Life is seeking your feedback. We’d like to know if and how you feel supported in your role as a partner/carer or family member of an amputee, and what kind of supports or resources could be useful to assist you? We are investigating options to develop specific supports for partners and carers and expand the information and supports that we currently provide.

Some people need support helping their loved one to navigate funding streams such as the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) or My Aged Care (MAC) system; knowing what supports are available to them; what prosthetic options or home modifications are available. But these are only some of the factors and challenges that people who care and support amputees are faced with, especially immediately after an amputation has occurred.

If you would like to share your feedback with us, then we would love to hear from you.

We need to know:

  • what works;
  • what doesn't work;
  • what you need and what you need to know about;
  • what gaps (if any) are there and;
  • how you think we could fill those gaps

We've created a short survey, which you can complete here - You're also very welcome to call or email us with your feedback and suggestions.
