Unparalleled Cancer Support
Beyond the amazing collection of technology and talent at Florida Hospital Flagler is the exceptional support we provide to our patients. Some of the most accessed cancer support resources include:
Cancer Rehabilitation Program
Cancer patients face physical, cognitive and emotional concerns that can affect their quality of life, no matter what type of cancer they have overcome or are currently facing. For many cancer patients, the aggressive, life-saving interventions may take a harsh toll on the human body. So while the fight against cancer is being won, patients may experience debilitating fatigue, pain, joint stiffness, weakness, emotional strain and limited mobility. Florida Hospital Flagler's Cancer Rehabilitation Program meets the challenges facing cancer patients and survivors by providing state-of-the-art rehabilitation interventions while working closely with a patient’s oncology team. The rehabilitation team customizes each patient’s therapy program around his or her individual chemotherapy cycles, radiation treatments and surgery. Our speech, occupational and physical therapists help patients avoid the impairment that can often accompany oncology treatment and are focused on returning people to their highest level of function.
Cancer Support Assistance
Referrals for counseling, discharge planning, assistance with post hospital needs, vocational and financial assistance and referral to community resources.
Cancer Support Groups
Support Groups for patients and their families that provide information about living with cancer.
Individual nutritional assessment and educational services from a registered, licensed dietitian are available. These services focus on the unique eating and nutritional challenges faced by patients with cancer.
Access to referrals for genetic counseling is available for a person that is diagnosed with a cancer that physicians have found will increase the risk of their family members becoming diagnosed with a cancer.
