Welcome to the 2019 Amputee Concierge Newsletter
Happy New Year!
Welcome to 2019
My name is Craig Towler and I’m the Founder of Amputee Concierge, a 100% free resource geared towards simplifying the process of getting questions answered that a new amputee or family member may encounter.
I would like to personally welcome you to the first issue of the Amputee Concierge Newsletter and invite you to our ever growing community of support!
Goals For This Newsletter
When building a community of support, I feel that it’s important to communicate and discuss important topics and issues with others that will encourage deeper thinking, reflection, and potential help relative to our situations. I wanted to provide a user-friendly source for sharing and reading this information, delivered right to your inbox.
At the bottom of each newsletter, you will see tabs you can click to answer our featured question of the month, share a location that meets your mobility needs, share your story, or submit any questions you might have. We will review these responses, and select a response for each category to be featured in a future newsletter.
My goal is for this newsletter to evolve into whatever we want it to be over time. So, I’ll also be asking for any feedback/ advice you might have and how to improve, as well as ideas for new sections we can add. We’ll be starting with a monthly or bi- monthly release.
Featured Q & A of the Month
Each month we will present a question to you about life, perspective, and circumstance with the intention of sparking conversation and ideas.
Shared experiences and perspectives are often undervalued and this a space that can bring value and empowerment back to ourselves, while being inclusive to everyone.
In The News
Local entrepreneur uses experiences to serve the adaptive community
Amputee Concierge is an online platform Towler created for people with limb loss to ask questions and receive answers from Towler himself in a timely manner.
The platform is still in its formative stage after its soft launch last year. Towler is working on the details, or the “back-end” of things — funding, time management and expansion. But the core of the platform as a place to efficiently find resources will remain the same. Keep Reading...
Community Member of the Month
Hi, My Name is...
I know it has always been very empowering for me to share my own story, so I’m hoping to create a space/ platform to help others do the same. Each month we will feature a member of our community who has volunteered to share their story.
Accessible Location of the Month
Each month we will highlight a business or location chosen from our communities that provides equal access to everyone and is a shining example of what being accessible truly means!
We Want to Hear From You!
Featured Question of the month: Do you consider yourself to be disabled? Is this a hard question for you to answer - why?
New Accessible Location of the month: Do you have a favorite spot around town that caters to your mobility needs? We’d love to hear about it!
Community Member of the month: Would you like to share your story? We’d sure like to hear it!
