People have many different reactions to a cancer diagnosis. You or your family member may experience shock, fear, hopelessness, depression, or loneliness...possibly all in combination.
Patients and families may have other worries too, such as employment and financial concerns, how to pay for required drugs, places to stay during the treatment time, home care, childcare and transportation.
Our Social Workers can help you complete forms and applications (funding, housing, insurance benefits, etc.), plan appropriate home support services and provide counselling and follow-up.
Counselling is also available to help individuals and families cope with the emotional aspects of cancer; including grief and bereavement interventions.
