Given all the challenges of a cancer diagnosis, some people find it helpful
to talk things over with a trained and sympathetic listener. Social Work
Services at Beaumont provide counseling services to individuals, families
and caregivers at no charge.
The Social Work staff includes specially trained clinicians who help patients
maximize their coping skills and help families handle survivorship, grief, loss
and bereavement. Social workers coordinate care with the medical team and are
trained in relaxation and cognitive behavioral techniques. They can also provide
referrals to community resources.
In addition, Beaumont offers Genetic Counseling to help
people understand and adapt to the medical, psychological and familial
implications of genetic contributions to disease.
