What is Supportive Cancer Care?

Dealing with cancer can be overwhelming. That’s why we’ve put together a supportive care team to assist you every step of the way.

What is a supportive care team, and what do they do?

Our support team has diverse experience in healthcare, including health and nutrition coaching, patient care, social work, case management, and oncology nursing. They do not make medical decisions but provide emotional and logistical support. Based on your needs, we will match you with an expert for one-on-one support.

Support can take many forms, such as helping with an Explanation of Benefits (EOB) form or listening to your concerns. Services include emotional support, nutrition advice, financial guidance, and self-care coaching. For medical and mental health care, they will find the appropriate provider or resource and support you through the process.

Relying on our support team differs from leaning on a caregiver. There’s no emotional barrier with your supportive care expert, and they are trained and connected to the oncology community, making them efficient in accessing the care you need.

Think of your supportive care experts as oncology care coaches. They provide education on managing your care, building symptom awareness, offering nutritional counseling, and teaching about side effects. They guide you to financial resources, address non-medical issues, and connect you with support groups.

Need emotional comfort or support? They help with that too. They assist with coping mechanisms, survivorship support, and connecting with oncology resources. If you need something but don’t know how to get it, ask your supportive care expert. They streamline complementary aspects of your care, so you can focus on recovery.
