The Whole You

Community Resource Connection

The Whole You program works with adult patients at
The Aquilino Center, who are newly diagnosed
with cancer, and their families, providing assistance
accessing community resources.

During the pandemic, CaringMatters' trained volunteers provide social and emotional support and virtual companionship, staying connected through frequent phone calls, notes, cards, text, email and FaceTime. These important interactions offer reassurances to patients that they are not alone as they face their health challenges. The goal is to help individuals improve quality of life and maintain the highest possible ability to function within the community throughout medical treatment and beyond.

When public health conditions allow, the program will provide access to practical support, such as transportation, companionship, food, respite care, support groups, relevant mental health services, and other services, as needed.
