Current Projects and Activities

BOOKLET

In collaboration with Hotel Dieu and Shaver Hospitals a booklet consisting of a compilation of our members true stories has been created. This is part of the information package received by new amputees through the Visitation Program. Our experience shows that ignorance of the facts is the greatest cause of fear and anxiety for new amputees. This information will help alleviate their fear and help them to get on with their lives.

OFFICE

In October 2016 the NAA opened an office at Brock University’s Niagara Centre for Health and Well Being located at 130 Lockhart Drive in St. Catharines. We currently employ students on a part time basis. Office hours are from 9:00 am to noon weekdays. The primary intent is to provide a centre of operations and to increase public visibility. Through the office and Brock University we offer an exercise program!
