Cancer Wellness Program at TCLMH
The Trego County Lemke Memorial Hospital Cancer Wellness Program is an outpatient service for people who have been diagnosed with cancer. Research shows that exercise, nutrition, education, and support provide a strong defense in the fight against cancer and its treatment effects. TCLMH has designed their Cancer Wellness Program to offer these tools to assist cancer patients in their journey from diagnosis through survivorship with the goal of empowering cancer survivors to enhance their overall quality of life.
Exercise benefits cancer survivors by reducing fatigue, reducing nausea, decreasing pain levels, and increasing tolerance to chemotherapy drugs. The program is tailored to the individual needs of the participant, no matter where they are in the recovery process. Each session will include cardiovascular conditioning, muscle strength, balance, and flexibility exercises. Participants will be given the opportunity to meet with a nutritionist and physical therapy staff as appropriate.
