Supportive Care services are available for patients and families going through treatment and after treatment for cancer. Supportive Care is located on Level 1 of the Walker Family Cancer Centre.

Like many people facing cancer, you and your family may have questions or concerns about:

  • Your job and finances
  • Talking to your family and friends about your cancer
  • Helping young children understand what is happening
  • Accessing available community and government resources
  • Managing day-to-day activities
  • Healthy eating
  • Coping with weight loss or changes in your appetite
  • The pain or symptoms associated with your cancer and its treatment
  • Feeling worried or sad
  • Your spiritual or religious needs
  • Grief, death and dying
  • Understanding the health care system and how to access necessary resources

We will work with you, your family and your primary team to help identify and respond to your supportive care needs. Based on your needs, you may meet one or more members of the Supportive Care team.
