  • Home Support Services: when you need some help at home

  • Transportation and Lodging: when you need to travel for cancer treatment

  • Work and School: when you are looking to return to working after cancer treatment

Helpful handouts, booklets, video clips and related links are available on each page

Counsellors are a part of your team

Your healthcare team wants you to have all the information and support you need to deal with your cancer diagnosis and treatment. Counsellors are a part of your healthcare team. You might find you need a counsellor to assess your situation and provide referrals to programs or services. You can make an appointment with Patient & Family Counselling Services at you cancer centre.
