Program and Services
The Wellness Community provides programs that complement traditional medical care. Psychosocial support is considered “the other half of cancer care”. Research shows that participation in the type of programs offered at The Wellness Community decreases distress, improves quality of life and may increase the potential of long-term survival.
Monthly presentations by doctors, nurses, researchers, and other professionals. Includes Q&A sessions. Become a more informed and active member of your treatment team.
At the heart of our program are professionally-led weekly and monthly groups for people with cancer and their loved ones. Group members experience (and create!) a caring, uplifting, and supportive environment with others who truly understand what it is like to be touched by cancer.
Certified instructors guide movement and teach nutrition techniques designed specifically to help cancer patients learn to deal with pain, side effects of treatment, and find assistance in boosting their immune system.
Journaling, scrapbooking, working with clay, painting, meditation, stress reduction classes, music therapy and more to assist with your recovery.
Youth & Family Events
Family events are activities for the whole family, designed for children (age 7-17) with adults diagnosed with cancer. Teen events are activities planned by teens living with cancer, for other teens with cancer, to share experiences while building support and friendship.
The six "pillars" of our program are Support Services, education, Healthy Lifestyles, Social Connections, Youth and Family. Please click on any of our pillars to see related calendar events.
