Memorial’s Oncology Rehab Program offers the latest oncology rehab care and research-based protocols that have been proven to help cancer survivors optimally heal and function. All our services are potentially reimbursable by health insurance providers.
Chemotherapy, radiation therapy and surgery can cause side effects that interfere with daily function and well-being. Survivors can deal with fatigue, weakness, insomnia, memory loss, fear, anxiety and depression. Survivorship is a distinct phase of cancer care, and our highly trained care team is ready to provide rehabilitation care with medical experts from the following areas:
- Oncology certified nurses
- Physical therapists
- Occupational therapists
- Speech and swallowing therapists
- Registered dietitians and nutritionists
- Mental health professionals
Our program is open to everyone, no matter the prognosis, cancer stage or phase of recovery. Survivors can receive our assistance whether they are beginning treatment or experiencing late effects or unresolved issues from prior treatments.
Our care team addresses the full spectrum of post-cancer care. Patient evaluation includes a review of health conditions and symptoms as well as diet, sleep issues, existing pain, endurance, strength, exercise habits and emotional outlook. Following evaluation, the healthcare team creates a personalized rehabilitation plan to increase strength and energy, alleviate or lessen pain, improve physical function, achieve emotional balance and boost the immune system.
