The Survivorship and Rehabilitation Program helps cancer patients prepare for treatment, recover more quickly and completely, and improve their quality of life after treatment.
Newly diagnosed cancer patients may benefit from prehabilitation, by working with therapists who help patients become physically and emotionally stronger before their treatment starts.
Patients living with cancer as a chronic disease may benefit from the program through improved management of treatment-related conditions such as chronic pain and decreased strength and energy.
People who are cured or in remission may enroll in the program with the goal of boosting their immune system and improving physical function.
Prehab and rehab interventions are provided by a team of highly-trained health care professionals from a variety of disciplines within Holy Family Memorial. Treatment is tailored to each individual’s needs based on many factors, including:
- Cancer diagnosis
- Cancer treatment
- Other existing health conditions
