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 Walk in the Door or Give us a Call

When you first arrive at a beautiful Wellspring centre, a Peer Support Volunteer will meet privately with you, to talk, and to  help you through next steps and in selecting programs that will best help you with your individual needs. If you cannot participate in person, simply call a centre to speak with a peer support volunteer any weekday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

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.

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 6,000 Wellspring members who had participated in programming 96 per cent of the 2,000 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.
