Your health care team is just one part of the support network you’ll find at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. We offer extensive resources to help patients, families, and caregivers. Nutritionists, patient navigators, volunteers, social workers, a place for kids to play—we'd like to help you take full advantage of all the services that can help with your care.
We have compiled a list of useful resources for you to explore. And if you can't find what you need, the Patient and Family Resource Center welcomes all of your questions.
Patient and family education
Caregivers play an important role in the health of our patients, but caregivers need support too. Learn about this important role, how to take care of yourself, join a caregiver support group, and find resources especially for caregivers.
Talking with kids about cancer can be challenging. We've compiled tools to help start that conversation. And our Child Life Specialist is available to help improve your experience with SCCA.
SCCA understands that cancer can affect the spirit, too—please ask for help if you need support or are feeling overwhelmed, frightened, or alone.
The nutritionists at SCCA offer reliable and accurate advice, classes, and information about food and nutrition to support your health and recovery during and after cancer treatment. We also have information on common side effects from treatment and general information about staying healthy.
While medicine is a critical part of our work at SCCA, we have a range of onsite services to help patients and their families. There's shopping and dining, housing services, a play room for kids—and the Patient and Family Resource Center to help you find any other services you might need.
