The 2011 edition of the AARBF resource What Now? Going Home: A Guide for Burn Survivors and Their Loved Ones is now available in English and in Spanish. Written by burn survivors and burn care experts, this booklet provides essential information that will walk burn survivors through the difficult days ahead after they leave the hospital or burn center.
As with the previous version, this guide covers many useful topics including physical healing and rehabilitation, emotional healing, dealing with stares, burns and children, and moving forward. New to the 2011 guide is a timeline of healing from a burn survivor, more information on intimacy, and new perspectives from burn survivors and their loved ones on their own recovery.
Thank you to all those who contributed to the new What Now? booklet, and for supporting burn survivors in their recovery process. If you would like to receive a copy, please email us at info@AARBF.org to request one sent to you.
