  • We care for the whole person

    Living with cancer is complicated. A diagnosis is stressful, and can bring up difficult emotions: feeling alone, confused, or overwhelmed.

    Medical care focuses on treating the body, but can leave other aspects unaccounted for. We take a psychosocial approach, taking care of social, emotional, physical, spiritual, and psychological needs. You may need someone to listen, teach, guide, or empower you — and that’s where we come in.

    Studies show that when psychosocial needs are met for a person affected by cancer, there are positive benefits, like reduced anxiety, stress, depression, and decreased symptoms.

  • Our programs work alongside medical treatment

    In 1990, we started Wellness House with a single mission: to better the lives of people living with cancer and the people close to them. Today, we offer a variety of programs and services — exercise classes, nutrition seminars, support groups, and more — that complement the treatment from your doctors and specialists. It’s a whole-person approach to healing, and it’s offered at no cost to you.

  • Take a psychosocial approach to healing

    A psychosocial approach looks at how psychological and social aspects affect your well-being. Taking care of these aspects can help you feel better, which can help you heal.

    Because everyone is different, their psychosocial needs are different. We recognize your individual preferences, concerns, and needs. Together, we’ll find the avenues that let you live your best life with cancer.
