New Patient Orientation

All newly diagnosed cancer patients and their caregivers are encouraged to attend our New Patient Orientation. Hematology patients are also invited. 

Learn how to get the most out of your doctor’s visits, communicate with others about your diagnosis, manage financial and legal issues, deal with stress related to your diagnosis, and more. You'll also learn about resources to support you during and after treatment.

New Patient Orientation takes place on Wednesdays from 11 a.m. to noon at the Cancer Center Library, 265 Cohasset Road, Suite 120, Chico. Register at the reception area of your doctor’s office at the Cancer Center or by calling (530) 332-3900.

Options for Care

At times, patients are diagnosed when their cancer is widespread. Sometimes the illness has recurred and treatment does not seem to be helping. In these cases, patients may want to be with loved ones in the comfort of their home. 

Enloe HomeCare & Hospice can help. The staff can provide invaluable care, as well as physical, emotional and spiritual support. Respect and dignity are enhanced through personal care planning and education for family members on patient comfort.
