Social Worker Support

Nurse comforts senior male cancer patient.

Dealing with cancer is a stressful experience. Thompson’s clinical social workers help patients and their families cope with the disease. Sometimes patients need assistance with:

  • Family Relationships
  • Emotional needs
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Grief

Our social workers can also help with referrals to community programs and financial resources (if the patient meets eligibility guidelines), including:

  • Assistance with applications for Social Security Disability, SSI and Medicaid
  • Referrals to community agencies
  • Qualified patients may receive assistance with expenses related to cancer treatment through the Thompson Cares Fund and other resources
  • Resources for transportation
  • Resources for prescription drugs
