Peer Visitation Program

Peer visitation offers patients the opportunity to talk with a trained volunteer who has experienced the aftermath of a serious injury. These trained peer visitors answer your questions and address your concerns from the perspective of someone who has “been there.”

Since they have lived through the experience, including the hospitalization and rehabilitation, TSN peer visitors understand the concerns of trauma patients on a personal level. The TSN peer visitor can relate to the uncertainty you might have about your recovery and offer understanding and tips for getting through the day. Most important, they are there to listen.

If you are interested in the Peer Visitation Program contact the TSN Coordinator at 843-792-8401 or email
