Wellbeing Centre Opens at Canopy Cancer Care

Apr 17, 2023

We are thrilled to announce the opening of our new Under the Canopy Wellbeing Centre at Canopy Cancer Care in Epsom. This new centre will provide our patients with easy access to supportive services, including a dietitian, physiotherapist, and health psychologist, all on the Mercy Hospital site. Our dietitian and physiotherapist are also available on-site at our North Shore clinic.

We understand that cancer treatment can be a stressful and overwhelming experience, not only physically but also emotionally. Therefore, we aim to provide our patients with the best possible care and support, not only for their cancer but also for their overall well-being.

Our Under the Canopy dietitian will work with our patients to provide personalized nutrition plans and advice tailored to their specific needs. Cancer treatment often impacts appetite and digestive issues, and we are here to help our patients overcome those challenges and support a healthy diet during their treatment.

Our physiotherapists offer exercise plans and physical therapy to help alleviate the physical symptoms of cancer treatment, such as fatigue and to rebuild muscle tone.  Our team will work with each patient to develop a personalized plan to help them manage their symptoms and improve their overall physical health and well-being.

Our health psychologist provides counselling and emotional health support to patients experiencing anxiety or depression associated with their cancer diagnosis. The psychologist works with each patient to develop personalized plans and coping strategies to help them manage mental and emotional health and well-being throughout their cancer journey.

We believe that the Wellbeing Centre will be an integral part of the holistic care we offer at Canopy Cancer Care. We aim to provide our patients with the best possible care and support to help them navigate their cancer journey with as much ease and confidence as possible.

We are excited to welcome our patients to the new Under the Canopy Wellbeing Centre and look forward to supporting them to achieve their overall health and well-being goals.
