You've celebrated the end of cancer treatment. But it's just the beginning of life as a survivor. Cancer treatment can often cause significant pain, fatigue and disability. At Mercy, we’re dedicated to helping cancer survivors regain health and wholeness so that they can live the best life possible. Through our Oncology Rehab and Survivorship program, we can help you minimize the difficult cancer side effects that often come with treatment.
A Cancer Rehabilitation Program for the Whole Person
Mercy’s program looks at “the big picture” in cancer rehab, rather than addressing single symptoms. In addition to focusing on a patient’s individual health conditions, specialists study:
- sleep issues
- exercise habits
- emotional outlook
All of these impact physical healing.
The program offers cancer therapy services, which may include exercise programs, energy conservation training, patient and family education, and referrals to other services. Other available Mercy services include massage therapy, acupuncture, healing touch, guided imagery and reflexology.
Dedicated Cancer Experts Who Care
The Mercy Oncology Rehab and Survivorship program provides you with coordinated cancer rehabilitation supported by an expert team of clinicians and providers. They can help ease the long-term effects of cancer treatment to improve the way you feel and live.
Your team may include: medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, surgical oncologists (breast surgeons), general surgeons, physical therapists, occupational therapists, chiropractors/acupuncture, dietitians, breast health navigators, palliative care specialists, holistic nurses, infusion nurses, social workers, speech therapists, inpatient oncology staff, pastoral services, certified lymphedema therapists and psychologists.
Most cancer rehabilitation services are reimbursed by health insurance providers. Check your plan for specific rehabilitation benefits.
