What We Do
Our goal is simple – to provide the best care possible for people living with a diagnosis of cancer, and we will work together with you, your family doctor and oncologist. We are a not-for-profit and no referral is required.
Our Clinical Services are provided by a team of physicians, nurse practitioners, nutritionists, clinical counsellors and exercise therapists. We have experience providing guidance on healthful diet changes, stress reduction and emotional counseling, decision making, exercise, and personal coaching.
We offer our services for free. Our members can select from an extensive selection of programs and services. Our signature two-day LIFE Program or the online LIFE Program modules provide the foundation. Consultations with our health professionals support your health, answer your questions and provide you with the information you need to make decisions about your health. Our classes provide ongoing support and knowledge, and consultations with our health professionals. See what InspireHealth has to offer!
The Benefits of Supportive Cancer Care
We offer options for better health and a better recovery. Growing scientific evidence confirms that stress reduction, eating a healthy diet, exercise and a positive support network can substantially improve health and well-being for people living with cancer and their supports.
We can provide you with the knowledge, tools and services to support your overall health during and after cancer treatment. Our doctors value standard cancer treatments, and will work with you, your family doctor and oncologist to provide the best cancer care possible.
How Our Care Approach Is Different
Cancer-Based Model – From the perspective of the cancer-based model, the patient plays no active role in their treatment or recovery. Since the focus is on the cancer, little effort is expended to support patients in exploring the benefits of healthful diet, exercise, spirituality and emotional support or other methods to enhance the patient’s well-being. Focusing solely on the cancer can leave patients feeling disempowered and unsure about how to contribute to their own health and well-being.
Person-Based Model – In this model, the person plays a fundamental role in their own health and well-being. Although surgery, radiation and chemotherapy can play a very important role in treating the cancer, it is the person and their health - mind, body and spirit – that is the focus of care.
“InspireHealth was somewhere to go, somewhere to call – it gave me what was missing when I was going through treatment. I was won over by their quality of care – I was blown away.”
