We are excited to offer a new support option specifically designed for our female patients. Support groups abound in our community, however, the AmpuTEA party is exclusive to OPC!
An AmpuTEA party is an informal gathering between women. There is no agenda and no formality. Simply put, we are facilitating the opportunity for friendships to develop and for amputees to help each other.
Sometimes gender specific issues arise concerning living with a prosthetic. Whether sharing ideas and tips for adapting shoes to discussing components, or simply talking about our families and current events, we hope to keep the conversations at the AmpuTEA party natural and honest.
The AmpuTEA party is not a support group. It will not be led by a trained therapist. Instead, we are providing this forum as an opportunity for experienced amputees to reach out and to lend support to those who are new to living with limb loss.
Whether you are new to living with limb loss or you have been an amputee since birth, we cordially invite you to join us. If you're looking for camaraderie and an informal opportunity to meet with other amputee women, let us schedule an AmpuTEA. Simply call our office (703) 698 5007 or email Peggy@opc1.com and ask to schedule an AmpuTEA party. Cookies and tea are, of course, provided!
