These workshops provide a friendly atmosphere for patients to share tips and ideas with others, covering topics such as symptoms of amyloidosis, care, rehabilitation, diet, managing everyday life and preventing risks. These workshops are led by specialists who are highly trained in their subjects: nurses, dieticians, doctors, genetic counsellors, occupational therapists, sports instructors, etc.
As well as the workshops, we also offer advice on the different kinds of daily assistance which are available. Patients can learn more about this by talking to our social assistants and taking part in sessions with our psychologist. The autohypnosis workshop is led by experienced nurses and takes on a psychophysical approach to help you deal with the pain and stress that this illness can cause. Please note that all workshops are in French.
