Support Programs

Look Good…Feel Better®

Look Good…Feel Better group programs are offered at the Shore Cancer Center. These programs are free, non-medical and product-neutral programs offered in partnership with the American Cancer Society, the National Cosmetology Association and the Cosmetic Toiletry and Fragrance Association Foundation.

At Look Good…Feel Better, people with cancer are taught to cope with skin changes and hair loss by using cosmetics and skin care products donated by the cosmetic industry. Participants learn special techniques for wearing hats, wigs and scarves.

After a make-up consultation, a free cosmetic kit is provided to each participant. To find out more information about Look Good…Feel Better or to schedule an appointment for the program, call 1-800-395-LOOK.

Continuing Care Programs

Some forms of cancer require a life-long commitment to aggressive management. Shore Medical Center’s clinical experts help cancer patients navigate the road ahead, arranging rehabilitation and the management of lymphedema when needed.

Nutritional Support

The cancer care team includes qualified clinical dietitians, who help patients develop healthy eating habits and manage the dietary requirements associated with cancer symptoms, medications and treatment programs.

Social Services and Psychological Counseling

Stress and anxiety often go hand-in-hand with a cancer diagnosis. You are not alone in your fight. Shore Medical Center provides trained experts to help manage the emotional and psychological side effects of cancer management for both patients and loved ones.

Shore Medical Center's discharge planning and social services professionals also help patients access any required after-treatment services, including home care; physical and occupational therapy; specialized equipment and training; and other community-based health care services.
