Aftercare Programs

Aftercare encompasses meeting the emotional and psychosocial needs of the patients and their families as well as educating them about what to expect along this extensive road of recovery. Most importantly, it offers opportunities and tools necessary to heal and to make the most positive transition from burn victim to burn survivor.

Survivors of burn trauma need to know there is hope; they are not alone. The North Carolina Jaycee Burn Center is here to provide professional aftercare programs that offer spiritual and emotional support for patients, families, friends and community members throughout the recovery process. Whether through information, individual interaction, camps, reunions, retreats, regional events, or conferences, the Burn Team continues to offer new ways to provide aftercare to everyone.
