Wellwood-Theme-Logo-Horiz-01 (2).2013

Wellwood is a community-based, non-profit organization which provides information, programs and peer support to people who have received a diagnosis of cancer, loved ones, caregivers and healthcare providers. Working with existing community agencies and cancer care providers, Wellwood aims to provide integrative supportive care.  As a safe, inclusive and accessible centre, volunteers and staff strive to make Wellwood barrier-free for all.

Wellwood shares the wisdom gathered from the experience of those who live, and work, with cancer, to ease the journey for all. They are committed to enhancing quality of life for people living with and affected by cancer. They provide supportive care programs in a safe, compassionate and healing environment.

All of the services that are offered at Wellwood fall within a series of themes: Peer support, Exercise & movement, Creative expression, Meditation & relaxation, Information and navigation.

The programs are client-driven, peer-facilitated and self-directed. All are free of charge and available to everyone affected by cancer – including those who have been diagnosed, family members, caregivers and health care providers.
