Burn Center Support Group
The St. Joseph Regional Burn Center understands that hospitalization is only the beginning of the life changing experiences that come with a burn injury. For this reason, the burn center offers burn survivors the opportunity to meet and assist one another through a burn support group. Members from the burn team also attend the meetings and help organize and facilitate topics for discussion. However, the true experts on making transitions through this experience are burn survivors themselves.
Events take place throughout the year at various locations in and around Fort Wayne. For additional information about St. Joe’s burn support group, call (260) 425-3574 (260) 425-3574 .
The Northeast Indiana Burn Council Inc., is a nonprofit organization that provides financial and other assistance to burn survivors and their families, as well as community burn prevention activities and education. The council works in conjunction with the burn center’s staff to provide burn support group activities, and the council provides financial assistance to children who want to attend burn camp. To contact the Northeast Indiana Burn Council, call 260-444-3636 or visit neinbc.org.
Burn camp is a wonderful opportunity for children ages 8 to 18 to spend a week with other children who have also survived burn injuries. For additional information about burn camp, talk to the nursing staff, or visit hoosierburncamp.org.
