Cancer Support Services
Care and support that address the whole person.
Understanding support services
We offer support services during all stages of your cancer journey – from diagnosis through treatment and recovery:
Oncology Social Workers assist patients and their families, through counseling, support, and referrals as appropriate. A social worker is available in the hospital or through an outpatient appointment.
Oncology-certified Dietitians assist patients and their families with managing symptoms and maintaining optimal nutrition during and after treatment.
Nurse Navigators help patients understand their diagnosis, treatment options and the healthcare system. They coordinate care and communication between patients and the cancer care team, identify needs/concerns and connect patients with resources and other support services.
Our Integrative Nurse Practitioner uses a holistic, patient-centered care approach during and after treatment including symptom management and prevention, improving overall well-being, and reducing risk of cancer recurrence.
An Oncology Psychologist provides emotional support and strategies for coping with the cancer experience.
Art Therapists promote healing, creativity and community through art making, either one-on-one or in a group.
Cancer support groups, education and movement classes are free for patients and survivors. We offer a range of programs to help you through diagnosis, treatment and recovery of cancer.
