SOAR – Survivors Offering Assistance in Recovery
Calgary is one of only two hospitals in Canada that offers the Survivors Offering Assistance in Recovery “SOAR” program designed by the Phoenix Society.
The hospital based program is intended to make it easier for burn centers to work with volunteers in providing peer support to patients. Peer support assists individuals in adapting to a burn injury through sharing similar experiences.
The SOAR training program empowers volunteers with information and skills needed to provide appropriate forms of support.
