Support and Survivorship
When you’re fighting cancer, personal support gives you strength and helps you heal. The survivorship program at Cape Cod Healthcare provides emotional and psychological support to you and your family and helps you plan for a life beyond cancer.
Help for Patients & Families
Our services are available to you from the moment you’ve been diagnosed with cancer. Some of the ways we help include:
Our services don’t end when treatment does. You can count on us for support with post-treatment services, guidance on managing the risk of second cancers and resources for leading a full and healthy life.
Social Workers for Personal Support
Our social workers are here to help with:
- Health insurance coverage questions and approvals
- Medication programs
- Disability and family leave procedures
- Counseling and crisis intervention services
- Transportation to and from the hospital
We also work closely with the Visiting Nurse Association of Cape Cod to identify home health and other support services, as needed.
