3031 Welcome to The Lodge at Torbay Hospital

0 (0 Likes / 0 Dislikes)
Hello and welcome to The Lodge at Torbay Hospital. We are a support and information centre, available free of charge to all patients with cancer, as well as their friends, relatives and carers. Through our team, which includes therapists and clinical psychologists, we provide support and a wide-range of services to thousands of people each year, before, during and often, long after treatment is completed. This video will tell you about the main support services that we offer at our Torbay Hospital Annexe site on Newton Road, near Lidl. As you can see we have dedicated parking spaces outside. So, what support can we offer to you? Firstly, information. If you have any questions at all relating to living with cancer, we have plenty of information available, either from our team members, or from our wide selection of free leaflets, DVDs and audio CDs. However, if you have any specific questions about your medical treatment or side effects, speak to the doctors or nurses involved in your care. We know that patients and their families experience a wide range of emotions when dealing with cancer, and having a safe space where you can talk over your feelings can really help. Our staff offer a listening ear either in the centre or over the phone. We can refer you to the MacMillan Clinical Psychology Service if appropriate. Being diagnosed with cancer and receiving treatment can put a lot of financial pressure on families. Our specialist benefit advisors can give you financial advice on benefits, entitlements and help with applications. The centre staff can discuss whether you are eligible for a MacMillan grant. Coping with cancer is challenging, but for many people, our group sessions and relaxation classes help them to feel better about themselves. Moving-on groups can help you adjust and live well following your cancer treatment. We offer pampering sessions with local beauty companies, and complementary therapies such as aromatherapy, reflexology and massage. Some types of chemotherapy and radiotherapy can cause you to lose your hair. We run a weekly wig fitting service, and also stock a range of headwear and other wig care products for you to purchase. If you are worried that cancer may run in your family, speak to our centre manager who can refer you to our monthly genetics clinic, where your family's risk of cancer can be discussed. You can call us on this number for advice, and to book appointments, on Monday through to Friday. You can drop into The Lodge on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, between 9 am and 4 pm, to find out more about our support services and to book onto any of our sessions. We look forward to welcoming you to The Lodge.
