Talking with someone who has ‘walked the walk’, understands the experience of a cancer diagnosis and the complexity of feelings that go with hearing the words” you have cancer”, is invaluable. Peer Support and Program Navigation is offered daily, at Wellspring Edmonton, with trained volunteers who have experienced cancer in their own lives. Trained volunteers are skilled listeners and understand that a cancer diagnosis and treatment is an emotional, mental and spiritual journey. A variety of resources and programs can empower patients and family and it is during Peer Support that the best and right timing of programs are discussed.
Peer Support is provided daily at Wellspring Edmonton from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm , either on a Drop In basis or By Appointment. Please call us at 780-758-4433.
Peer Support and optional Navigation is offered by trained volunteers with various professional backgrounds and direct experience with cancer. Meetings can be arranged by appointment or on a Drop-In basis. Sharing is confidential and at the discretion of the person seeking engagement. Individuals who are new to Wellspring are offered guidance and information on the programs, services and resources offered at no cost and without referral within this warm, welcoming community.
“I was seeking information about all that is available at Wellspring and really I couldn’t have asked for better guidance.”
Drop-In Program: This program requires no ongoing commitment and is especially helpful for those who are not feeling well, are in treatment or are coping with symptoms that make commitment difficult.
