Counselling & Support Groups

Counseling & Support Goups

Cancer CAREpoint provides a wide variety of support groups for both cancer patients and their caregivers and families. All groups provide a supportive environment to explore the challenges of a cancer diagnosis.

Exercise & Movement

Exercise & Movement

Studies have found that cancer patients who engage in moderate exercise each week experience significant benefits, both physical and emotional. Cancer CAREpoint offers classes in gentle movement, yoga, qigong and finding balance.

Family CARE Programs

Family CARE Programs

A cancer diagnosis impacts the whole family, and for a parent diagnosed with cancer, there is additional stress regarding how to help their child cope. Cancer CAREpoint offers two programs designed to help parents and their child communicate and cope with the diagnosis.

Mind-body Skills

Mind-body Skills

Cancer CAREpoint offers classes in meditation, guided imagery, and mind-body skills. Meditation helps manage stress and anxiety and is beneficial to cancer patients and their caregivers. Guided Imagery can prepare patients for treatment, medical appointments and other cancer-related procedures.

Nutrition Services

Proper nutrition can help cancer patients with recovery, vitality and quality of life. Cancer CAREpoint’s classes deliver information about the best nutrition during and after treatment, and provide recipes and information about how eating well can make a difference in your health.

Survivorship 

More and more individuals are living with cancer and facing the emotional and physical challenges that come with finishing treatment. Cancer CAREpoint has created a variety of programs to support cancer survivors.

Therapeutic Massage & Energy Work

Cancer CAREpoint offers both Massage & Energy Work to support healing.  Massage can reduce anxiety, pain and nausea.  It stimulates the release of endorphins and serotonin to lift mood and reduce stress and depression. Energy Work supports and facilitates physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health.

Wig Services

Experienced Cancer CAREpoint Wig Bank volunteers will help cancer patients select a wig and head covering.  They will also give instructions on how to use and care for the wig.
