When you or a loved one receives a cancer diagnosis, it’s hard not to feel overwhelmed and alone. Sometimes, you may feel other emotions: shock, grief, anger, or despair. Patients need not push these feelings aside. At Beacon Cancer Care, we can help patients work through them and understand that these feelings are normal and natural.
At some point, you understand that your life is more than cancer. Shifting your focus toward finding a care provider that promotes wellness specifically for cancer patients is a paramount step in the right direction. Beacon Cancer Care focuses on providing patients with the supportive, holistic, nurturing care they need while navigating their cancer journey.
We Offer Wellness Care for Cancer Patients
Having a compassionate support system is a valuable asset when you’re contending with cancer. While some individuals may have family or friends who can offer them the social support they need, many other people do not, or find they need someone who has experienced the unique challenges that cancer presents. That’s why it’s essential to have a care team that can educate you, advocate for your best interests, and tailor your treatment plan to your specific needs and preferences.
At Beacon Cancer Care, we are committed to going above and beyond for our patients. Whether it’s taking a few moments to chat or finding out whether you can participate in cutting-edge treatments, our medical care professionals provide cancer patients with the quality of care they would like to receive themselves. Providing patient-focused, supportive care enables us to make each patient’s journey with cancer as positive as possible.
We apply a holistic approach to cancer care services. That includes working with patients to determine what diet will give their body the fuel it needs as it contends with both cancer and its treatment. A key aspect of our care support includes the input of a registered dietician who is available to provide patients with information and recommendations for diet changes and choices to optimize their bodies’ ability to fight and recover from cancer.
In addition to recommendations, we offer a variety of supplements to assist patients who need additional nutritional support to give their bodies the best chance for recovery. We also provide guidance to patients who are dealing with treatment side effects that can cause food aversions and nausea.
Rehabilitation and Therapy
We work diligently to ensure that our patients access therapies and rehabilitation programs that improve their quality of life and overall prognosis. Patients receive an all-encompassing care plan that prevents any area of care from being neglected. By collaborating with patients’ chiropractors, physical therapists, and alternative care providers, we enable our patients to work towards their goals wholly supported.
We know that cancer treatment can cause a financial strain on patients and their families. We also know that adding financial worries to an already stressful situation is not in the best interest of our patients.
Our onsite financial counselor is available to explain insurance coverage, deductibles, projected costs and other matters. Part of our support is helping patients understand the costs of care and treatment so that they can make wise choices and ease their economic anxieties.
This support service is one that truly differentiates us from other care centers. Our counselors will not only help patients apply for grants and other forms of financial assistance, but also arrange lodging and transportation for the patient should they need it. Our team also works closely with pharmaceutical companies and cancer foundations to help with prescription assistance and come up with other creative ways to alleviate the financial stressors patients may be facing.
A cancer diagnosis is often a marathon and not a sprint, but our team stops at nothing to make your journey as positive as possible and to be there for you every step of the way. If you or a loved one has received a cancer diagnosis, we would be honored to offer you high-quality, personally tailored care. Contact us today at Beacon Cancer Care in Coeur d’Alene.
