Finding someone who understands what you are going through can be challenging. That is why we invite anyone who has been affected by cancer to attend one of our groups. Groups provide a safe, accepting environment for patients and loved ones to talk openly about the stress a cancer diagnosis brings. We have a support group for all types of cancer, as well as a group specifically for breast cancer. Caregiver, bereavement and children’s groups are also available.
Stress relief is an important part of managing a cancer diagnosis. We offer many options for relaxation and stress management:
Home of Hope regularly offers classes and workshops to inform participants about various effects of cancer and ways to cope with the challenges presented by a cancer diagnosis. Doctors, nurses and dieticians are among the professionals that volunteer their time as guest speakers. Lunch & Learns are an informal way to get up-to-date information on cancer-related topics...and we provide lunch.
At Home of Hope, our goal is to help people affected by cancer and their loved ones in a variety of ways. That is why we provide opportunities to relax and have fun through our social events and activities. These events are open to all participants and their caregivers, families and friends. We invite you and your family to come out to one of our events, like card and game night, movie night, picnics, cookie baking and holiday parties.
Additional information is also available through the Home of Hope lending library which carries a wide variety of books, music and movies. Our goal is to provide access to relevant health-related resources, as well as materials for enjoyment.
There may be times when something arises and you or your loved one is unsure about where to turn. Home of Hope is here to help. Even if we are unable to provide the service or tool you need, our staff will work to find the resources that you need. Home of Hope is part of a network of service providers meeting the unique needs of individuals and families facing challenges associated with cancer.
