Understanding support services

Going through — and recovering from — cancer treatment can be difficult on the body, mind and soul. Legacy Cancer Institute provides complete support in a variety of ways, depending on your needs and interests. 

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.

  • Nutrition consultation with an oncology-certified registered dietitian to provide education on foods to help with symptom management.

  • Pharmacy navigator to review your medications and address medication issues.

  • Massage therapy by a certified oncology massage therapist, to help with relaxation, stress management, symptoms and side effects.

  • Expressive arts therapy and classes provide activities that promote healing, creativity and community.

  • Stress management provides support for coping with the emotional aspects of the cancer experience.

  • Cancer groups, education and movement classes for patients and their families. We offer a range of free classes and groups to help you through diagnosis, treatment and recovery of cancer. These provide education, activities and emotional support.
