Meritus Health Oncology Rehabilitation

Cancer Rehabilitation
The John R. Marsh Cancer Center, in collaboration with Total Rehab Care, addresses the needs of cancer patients experiencing symptoms as a result of cancer or cancer treatment. A multidisciplinary team of physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, pharmacists, nurses, radiation therapists, dietitians, nurse navigators and social workers help identify cancer patients and survivors with symptoms including:

Fatigue

Pain

Weaknesses

Cognitive gaps

Postural changes

Balance and gait problems

Speech difficulties

Swallowing issues

We understand the personal aspects of coping with cancer and want patients to achieve a quality of life during and after treatment. The oncology rehabiliation program helps patients feel self-empowered and gives them the support and guidance they need to move beyond a cancer diagnosis. A physician referral from a primary care physician or oncologist is needed to enroll in the program. For more information, contact Total Rehab Care at 301-714-4025.

Whether you’re newly diagnosed or long finished with treatment, we can help

We serve all survivors in need, whether they are beginning treatment, finished with treatment, or experiencing late effects or unresolved issues from long-ago treatment. Our program is open to everyone no matter the prognosis, cancer stage or phase of recovery. Newly diagnosed patients may want to increase their strength and endurance and prevent future medical problems; survivors living with cancer as a chronic disease may come to us for help managing treatment-related conditions; and individuals who are cured or in remission may enroll in our program with the goal of boosting their immune systems so that they can heal as well as possible.
