FORCE’s Cancer Support Service is available in Okehampton every Wednesday (10am – 4pm) at Okehampton Hospital where we mirror a number of the services on offer at our Exeter Support and Information Centre.
The service is available to anyone at any stage of a cancer diagnosis along with their family or friends.
You don’t need a referral which means you can simply call in, find out more about us and how we can support you and your loved ones.
All our services are FREE.
Information and Advice
A cancer diagnosis may mean having to deal with a lot of questions, worries and uncertainty.
Advice and support is available through our Support Services Team in Okehampton. Written information and booklets on specific cancer treatment or self-help guides are available.
Sign-posting to other services, such as benefits advice or help for carers is also available.
Support & Counselling
Counselling is available in Okehampton but sessions need to be booked in advance.
FORCE Oncology Support Specialists are trained counsellors who as well as offering support, can also give more time and in-depth help in the form of counselling.
Counselling offers a safe place where you can speak about feelings that may worry or frighten you. It gives time and privacy to talk about how cancer has affected your life.
To enquire about this service please phone 01392 406151
All of our complementary therapies are delivered by qualified therapists, some of whom are volunteers. All our therapies work alongside any medical treatment to help promote relaxation and improve emotional and physical wellbeing.
