UCD Burn Recovery Support Group

The Burn Recovery Support Group is a monthly meeting where survivors and survivors of necrotizing fasciitis, families and significant others discuss issues and raise questions related to their injury.

The meeting is facilitated by the Firefighters Burn Institute Regional Burn Center Burn Outreach Coordinator. She provides a relaxed, safe and undisturbed atmosphere, conducive to the needs of all those who attend. As a Survivors Offering Assistance in Recovery (SOAR) — designated facility, some of our peer support volunteers will serve as a source of hope and inspiration to those experiencing a burn injury. Questions are answered and anxieties related to the injuries can be diminished or alleviated in this safe haven. Useful topics are discussed each month to aid in the participants understanding of the various stages of injury, rehabilitation and recovery.

Other Burn Team specialists are occasionally invited to participate and talk on such topics as cosmetics, vocational rehabilitation and physical therapy, and reconstructive options.
