Why does cancer support & rehab matter? orange cup of tea icon

We all know that cancer's symptoms and the side effects of treatment can take a heavy toll on patients. But did you know that a number of cancer side effects can be reduced with a cancer rehab program?

A cancer rehab program helps improve quality of life by reducing common symptoms like fatigue, pain, moodiness, anxiety, stress and depression.

If you’re living with cancer, recovering from treatment or waiting for treatment, cancer rehab could be helpful for you.

Carer Support Services orange love heart icon

If you and your carer both need support during your cancer journey, the Cancer Support Program allows your carers to join the program, to get the support they may need.

A cancer diagnosis or treatment journey can have many different impacts on the feelings and needs of your support network. This program may be able to provide your carers access to support services they need whilst on the journey with you.

Chemo at Home orange stethoscope icon

Did you know that if you are covered on Peoplecare’s hospital cover for chemotherapy, you can get your chemo treatment at home? That’s a nice touch for what is a pretty disruptive treatment.
