A diagnosis of cancer can be stressful to you and your family. Learning to gain a sense of control over your situation can be very helpful. Smilow Cancer Hospital has Licensed Clinical Social Workers who can help you to manage your feelings and concerns throughout your cancer care. He or she will be able to listen, provide emotional support, teach coping strategies, and assist with problem solving to help you and your family maintain the best quality of life. We also have social workers available at each of our Care Center locations to assist you throughout your treatment process.
Our social workers also facilitate many support groups, both at our main hospital as well as at our Care Centers. Support groups provide the opportunity to receive emotional and educational support and to meet with others who are undergoing similar treatment or who have successfully completed treatment. Information about the support groups is available from your social worker or the Family Resource Center at Smilow Cancer Hospital. They will also assist in connecting you to any community resources that may be of value.
