Free wellness workshops for cancer patients

Current and former cancer patients and their family members and carers are invited to participate in a range of free wellness workshops to be held in Gosford.

The workshops are being held as part of the CoastCanCare Wellness Program, an initiative of Central Coast Local Health District and funded thanks to the support of the community through Dry July. CoastCanCare Wellness Program coordinator Ms Tia Covi said the workshops were designed to give people the techniques, tools and strategies to keep their life on track, during and after cancer treatment. “When most people think of cancer treatment they understandably focus on the medical treatment,” said Ms Covi. “However, we know it is also important to provide people with the tools and support they require to enhance their treatment experience and quality of life. A self-care and relaxation workshop will be held on Wednesday, October 15, and an exercise workshop will be held Wednesday, October 22. A nutrition and hydration seminar will be held on Wednesday, October 29, a pain management seminar on Wednesday, November 5, an improving sleep seminar on Wednesday, November 12, and a medications and treatments seminar on Wednesday, November 19.
