Survivorship Health Wellness Initiative
Developing a plan for life after cancer.
At CHI St. Joseph Health, our goal is to help make life after cancer the best it can be. With medical and technological advances in cancer treatment in our country, increasingly more patients are becoming cancer survivors.
To support the best outcome for every patient, our expert team begins survivorship planning at the time of cancer diagnosis, connecting you to the resources and services you’ll need throughout and following your cancer journey. Tailored to fit your unique needs, these health and wellness services may include:
- Physical therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Speech therapy
- Pelvic floor therapy
- Lymphedema therapy
- Aquatic therapy
- Mental health therapy
- Dietician consultation
- Free comprehensive fitness plan with six-month WellFIT membership
As part of survivorship services, our team will coordinate care to proactively address potential side effects of cancer treatment, such as weight gain, decreased strength and endurance, diminished range of motion, and swelling of the arms for breast cancer patients.
We will also link you to our network of providers, who can assist you at any stage of your active treatment, well into survivorship.
