Living Well Rehabilitation Program
Dedicated to assisting cancer patients in living well throughout all stages of recovery
The rehabilitation department provides individualized evaluation and treatment of patients to assist in managing and minimizing the potential side effects of cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy, radiation, and limitations after surgery.
The goal of the Living Well Rehabilitation Program
is to provide state-of–the-art rehabilitation services in order to maintain or improve a patient’s quality of life throughout any stage of treatment and recovery. Our specially trained therapists are dedicated to providing the highest quality of care close to home for the MetroWest community.
