My mom has been diagnosed with breast cancer and cant find a family friendly and safe place to receive treatments
Hi Lizz i'm so sorry to hear about your mom. My mom is in remission. But I struggled trying to find a hospital that would provide her with more than just treatments. I took her to RWJUH Hamilton, I'd be happy to tell you more about it.
I would like to learn more about this treatment center as I don't want my mom to feel alone, I'm all she has and I'm having a hard time with her diagnosis as well
Of course, I understand. RWJUH Hamilton has a Holistic Healing Program that provides services to patients for no charge that focus on the mental and physical well being of the patients with things like reiki therapy, video cooking classes, massages and so on. These treatments and seeing your moms mental health improve will in turn help you feel a little better too!
Oh! I think I have heard of socio-economic factors. What does that include? Also, do they have more missions?
RWJUH Hamilton also has a social impact plan which makes them even more impressive. One mission that they try to improve is socio-economic factors!
Their mission is to improve education such as early childhood development, family health literacy, parenting education, and professional development. They will educate key internal and external stakeholders about the interplay of health outcomes and the social determinants. Using social impact, they can increase individual's understanding. They do have more missions as well!
That is so cool. I was not even informed about this socio-economic problem. That is really impressive that they want to take measures into their own hands to accomplish goals like that.
Another mission of RWJUH is focusing on Global Health. RWJBarnabas Health wants to create health equality in a "glocal" manner- locally and globally. Mental health is regarded as a vital foundation for psychosocial resilience of individuals, communities and societies throughout the world. The Holistic Healing Program helps cancer patients with their mental health by offering programs to help them heal and relax during their treatment.
Wow! I definitely would feel more comfortable with my mom being treated there!
Mom I know you have been researching which hospital to start your chemo at, but I think I figured our the best one! Let me tell you about it.
