At CarePoint Health, we understand that living with cancer can impact every area of your life, including your family, your job, and your mental and physical well-being. Our support services are designed to give you the best quality of life as you define it. We provide emotional and practical support services for patients living with cancer, family members, loved ones, and caregivers.
As a patient, you will have the opportunity to meet with a variety of experts including doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, nutritionists, palliative care practitioners, physical rehabilitation specialists, and social workers, all with the goal of helping you identify the services that are best for you. Support services include:
- Emotional support and counseling
- Pain and symptom management
- Support groups
- Nutrition counseling
- American Cancer Society programs such as “I Can Cope” and “Look Good Feel Better”
Ask your doctor, nurse, or nurse navigator for information on any of these services. See below for additional contact information.
