COVID-19 Update March 20,2020

 

Dear Friends,

Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana is doing our part to reduce the spread of COVID-19 to our clients, families, volunteers and staff. We remain committed to our mission of helping all people affected by cancer and will continue to provide compassionate care to our clients and the community. However, because many of our constituents are at a higher risk  we are taking some additional steps to maintain the safety and well being of the people we serve.

Cancer Service is limiting all client and staff interactions to phone and email. All walk-in visits are suspended until further notice.

We know that important life-saving treatment continues and the pandemic adds to the stress on families. We will provide as many services and programs you count on as possible. Please call or email your client advocate directly, or use one of these connection points:

Thank you for your support of Cancer Services. Please continue to check our website at www.cancer-services.org.

Be well,

Dianne May
President and CEO of Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana

COVID-19 Precautions at Cancer Services

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dear Friends,

The information and guidance continues to evolve about how to best address the risks presented by COVID-19. Latest reports from public health professionals encourage everyone to practice social distancing as a strategy to limit the spread of coronavirus.

Social distancing is a term epidemiologists use to refer to a conscious effort to reduce close contact between people as a way to stymie community transmission of the virus.

In an effort to protect our clients, staff and the greater community, Cancer Services is suspending group meetings. This decision includes all education sessions, weekly exercise classes and support groups. We will re-evaluate this status the first week of April.

We know how important these sessions are to you. They provide motivation and tools for building wellness. They are communities of friends and co-survivors who encourage each other. We will resume these groups as soon as this health crisis eases.

In the meantime, you can practice many of the techniques you’ve learned at Cancer Services in your own home. Pay attention and spend a little more time preparing healthy meals. Turn on some soft music and practice tai chi or mindfulness meditation.

Client Advocates continue to be available to meet with you in person, talk by telephone or respond to your emails. Watch www.cancer-services.org for more information, resources and updates.

Be well,
Dianne May
President and CEO of Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana
