Support Groups

For many people, dealing with a difficult diagnosis represents their first extensive contact with the medical profession. In order to better serve the community, CareMount Medical is pleased to provide ongoing support groups. While medical care is the patient’s first priority, supportive and educational services can help with the many issues patients and families face. We are proud to offer this service to support the continuum of care that coordinates treatment and complements the necessary professional services to patients.

A Support Group is an ongoing series of meetings with newly diagnosed, in-treatment,and survivors all sharing their thoughts and feelings. The meetings do not have a formal agenda. Information is exchanged; treatments are discussed, and speakers are sometimes invited. But for the most part, there is conversation and wide-open discussions that can touch on issues like drug side effects, treatment options, managing children’s fears, coping with one’s own feelings of vulnerability, dealing with family members’ concerns, friendships, and more. Surprisingly, there is a good deal of laughter at the meetings, humor that comes from camaraderie, shared pain, and understanding.

A Support Group can provide a connection in an experience that can feel isolating; it can give support in hard times; it supplies information and coping skills; it makes people feel less helpless about themselves because they are able to help others; it offers tips that only others diagnosed with the same disease can provide, and it can allow powerful emotions to be addressed.
