Psychosocial support during radiotherapy

Coping with cancer and the associated changes and restrictions is a challenge for patients of all ages, and for their relatives. It calls for a lot of strength – both physically and mentally.

The Psychosocial Service at WPE offers you and your relatives support and assistance. At your request, we’ll be happy to support you throughout your therapy. The following offerings are available:

  • Explanatory information on the procedures and requirements of proton therapy
  • Needs-based support during radiotherapy (including preparatory measures)
  • Face-to-face discussions in a shielded environment – during radiotherapy and in crisis situations
  • Relaxation techniques and other methods to reduce physical and mental tension
  • Referral to further sources of assistance and contact to self-help groups

As part of the overall treatment concept at WPE, it goes without saying that this service is always confidential and free of extra charge.

Tailored help for adults and children

Everyone has their own way of dealing with their specific illness and treatment. With this in mind, the Psychosocial Service at WPE has developed age-appropriate guidance and support concepts enabling us – in consultation with you – to put together a programme that’s tailored to your particular needs and gives you the best possible support during treatment.

Our Psychosocial Service team speaks German and some English. Interpreters can be brought in to assist with these support services.
