I came out of hospital 8 months ago after 3 months in ICU (2 in an induced coma). We started a support group and wish to come under Icu steps umbrella.
My question is about how best people have promoted their support groups. I mean in the way of getting those that would benefit to find out about the group. Has anyone found approaching local surgeries and GPs worthwhile? Samaritans? Citizens Advice?
We are trying to establish a icu visiting rota too.
There were so many inconveniences to overcome once I'd woken up - but I wish I'd had someone show me that recovery was possible - Alone, it felt like an unsumountable struggle to get back to normal at times.
Has anyone set such a scheme up and have you guidelines?
Thanks in advance for any feedback.
