At St. Joseph Hospital, we understand that comprehensive survivorship services help survivors improve their ability to function as well as their overall quality of life. Regardless of the stage of cancer or phase of treatment or recovery, patients can benefit from participation in St. Joseph Hospital’s Cancer Rehabilitation (CARE) Programs.
Cancer rehabilitation is much like other forms of rehabilitation which happen after a serious illness or injury such as a stroke or car accident. Your rehabilitation program may include appointments with and treatments recommended by medical professionals including physiatrists (doctors who specialize in rehabilitation medicine), nurses, physical, occupational, and/or speech therapists, and mental health professionals. St. Joseph Hospital’s CARE Program:
Our skilled therapists assist patients who are experiencing cancer, have a history of cancer, or are having musculoskeletal issues related to cancer treatments that are impacting their lives. The goal of the Cancer Rehabilitation Physical Therapy Program is to treat the whole person through compassion, exercise, and various treatment techniques to improve their overall quality of life.
St. Joseph Hospital’s CARE Program is a cancer survivorship program focused on improving the lives of survivors who suffer from the side-effects caused by cancer and its treatments. As a CARE Program patient, you will receive comprehensive cancer rehabilitation treatment to improve the symptoms affecting your daily functioning and quality of life. These symptoms may include:
Most cancer rehabilitation services are reimbursed by health insurance providers. Check with your insurance plan for specific rehabilitation benefits, including information about your deductibles, co-pays, and limits.
Our team provides one-to-one patient care, tailored to meet the specific functional needs and goals of each individual patient in a supportive, encouraging, and friendly environment.
