Quality cancer care includes supportive care services that help keep you well physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually from the time of diagnosis throughout your journey with cancer. Working together as a team, we address challenges so that your cancer treatment can be successful.

Learn more about these supportive care services below.

Integrative Services

Integrative services like lymphedema therapy and acupuncture can ease the side effects of treatment and improve your overall well-being. The Healthy Steps class can help you regain range of motion, increase flexibility, reduce swelling, and promote positive self-image during treatment and afterward.

Oncology Social Workers

Oncology social workers offer patients and families practical and emotional support. Services include referrals to community resources and assistance with financial help, applications for disability insurance, transportation, and housing. They also offer short-term support related to coping, difficult family dynamics and end-of-life counseling.

Ask for a social work referral from your physician or nurse, or call 530-332-3864 to talk to a social worker.

Nutritional Counseling

Nutritional counseling with our registered dietitian is available with a referral from your nurse or provider. She addresses nutrition concerns like lack of appetite, unintended weight loss, or weight gain and other symptoms related to cancer treatment or surgery. The Cancer Center Library also offers cookbooks and other resources related to diet.

Cancer Psychiatry

Cancer psychiatry is intended for Enloe cancer patients whose treatment is in jeopardy because of psychiatric symptoms. Cancer affects more than just the body, and psychiatric illnesses can arise or worsen during your cancer journey. A referral from your provider is required.

Pain Management

Pain management is available if you’re experiencing significant or chronic pain. Enloe’s Pain Management Clinic offers a variety of procedures and treatments to alleviate pain and avoid the side effects and risks of pain medications. Call 530-332-3277 for more information.

Spiritual Support Volunteers

Spiritual Support Volunteers are available to come alongside patients and families to explore what may bring them comfort, strength and peace, and to offer a listening ear or prayerful companionship. This service is offered to patients and families of any religion, denomination and to those whose spirituality is experienced apart from religious context.
