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.

Peer Support

Sometimes we need to know that someone is listening, understands what you are going through, and really cares. Such support is available through one-on-one conversations with specially-trained Peer Support Volunteers.

Peer Support Volunteers are cancer survivors and caregivers of cancer patients who have lived a cancer experience. They are available to provide emotional and coping support to individuals who are in similar situations.  Peer support volunteers also provide assistance to help you navigate the program options available to you after considering your current needs, interests and time. Over time, as your needs change, the peer support volunteers will remain periodically in contact to ensure you continue to receiving the care needed.

Also available is specialized peer support for those experiencing myeloma, pancreatic cancer or bladder cancer.

Peer support is available by phone or in-person* starting April 4 at Wellspring Westerkirk House between 10 a.m and 4 p.m. Otherwise, to book your appointment with a Peer Support Volunteer send an email to peersupport@wellspring.ca.

*please note that if you drop into Wellspring Westerkirk House you will need to provide proof of double vaccination and masks are to worn at all times.
