Caring for the Whole Person

Receiving a diagnosis of cancer can lead to many questions. Sometimes the comfort you need is finding someone who understands your situation, hears your concerns and offers you hope. Having one resource, close to home, that provides this comprehensive care for you or a loved one, can help eliminate the questions and fears that often accompany a cancer diagnosis.

The Monticello Cancer Center understands that treating cancer involves not only state-of-the-art technology and expert providers, but also an environment designed to care for the whole person. That is why we offer supportive services developed to relieve stress, encourage emotional well-being and inspire relaxation.

Complimentary services designed to care for the whole person at the Monticello Cancer Center include:

  • Reflexology - Hand and foot massage
  • Massage Therapy
  • Monthly support groups
  • One-on-one visits with a pharmacist to consult on medications
  • One-on-one visits with a dietician
  • One-on-one visits with social services
  • Onsite volunteers to provide comforting items such as blankets, books, food, hats and movies to patients receiving chemotherapy or radiation treatment
