Chronic Cancer Coaching
For many people cancer is a life-transforming experience and can be a powerful motivator for change. The coaching programs at Wellspring are designed to provide members with one-on-one support by a trained volunteer to identify areas where change is desired, set goals and create a plan to work towards where they would like to see themselves.
Volunteers work with members individually to identify their needs and concerns under three subcategories; Physical, Emotional, and Practical concerns.
The overarching goal of the program is to provide education and support for individuals who are living with a chronic cancer to achieve an improved quality of life.
The goals of the Chronic Cancer Coaching program are to:
- Provide tools and strategies to minimize the anxiety and uncertainty with coping with cancer over a longer period of time
- Address individual concerns so that the individual feels heard, supported and encouraged,
- Create an actionable, self-managed plan that addresses each patient’s specific concerns and needs
- Provide useful information, resources and community-based programming that will aid in the individual wellness needs, plans and strategies
