Online Programs

Well on the Web is an extension of the programs available in the Wellspring Centres across the country, enabling those who live far from a physical centres, or those not well enough to leave their homes, with access to Wellspring’s special brand of care and support.

What You Can Expect

Help Awaits – Just Give us a Call

If you choose to visit a Wellspring centre in person, you will be greeted by a Peer Support Volunteer who will meet privately with you, to talk, and to help you select programs that are best suited to your individual needs, interests and time.

If you are unable to participate in person and wish to speak with a Peer Support Volunteer, simply click here, and a private meeting by telephone will be arranged for you.

Types of Programs Available

Some programs will help when you’re not feeling well, or you have limited available time because of treatment. Others will aid in your recovery by helping you regain physical strength and wellness. If you are further along in your cancer journey, there are programs to help you manage your own health on a long-term basis.

Drop in programs, like meditation, yoga and peer support  don’t usually require an ongoing commitment, while the registered programs, like NourishCancer Exercise, Brain Fog or Returning to Work ask that you commit to extended sessions.

In addition, some programs are only for cancer patients, while others welcome caregivers and family members to participate.

All Wellspring programs are led by professionals such as psychologists, physiotherapists, art therapists, and registered dietitians.

Over time, a Wellspring volunteer will contact you now and again, just to discuss any new needs your might have and to provide you with new program recommendations that might help.

Closely Monitored Results for Greatest Impact

Wellspring regularly conducts evaluations of all programs to ensure members receive the greatest impact from all program opportunities. In a 2019 survey of 6000 Wellspring members who had participated in programming 96 per cent of  the 2000 respondents felt that they had gained the skills and the knowledge needed to address their needs, were better able to cope, and received the support they needed to manage going forward.

Being a part of the compassionate and caring Wellspring community means having the opportunity to talk with others who have been through similar experiences with cancer, to access experts and to share knowledge, all in a welcoming, warm, safe and encouraging environment.
