Emotional or social support
Many people find it helpful to speak with people who've been through similar experiences. This is an online support group for people recovering after Intensive Care, and their family and friends. It's a very friendly and welcoming Edinburgh-based group, but is open to anyone from across Scotland. The support group meetings are largely run by former Intensive Care patients themselves. We offer a listening ear, understanding, reassurance, hope and kindness.
You can find details of our meetings on the ICUsteps website: https://icusteps.org/support/support-groups/edinburgh. We can also be found on Twitter @ICUSEdinburgh. We run our online meetings through an app called Zoom, which you will have to download. It's really easy to use, and you can join the meetings on your computer, phone or tablet. Face to face meetings will resume once conditions allow.
