A Personalized Nutrition Program for Cancer Patients
Our commitment to you is quality care.
At Care4ward, we know that personalized nutrition support during cancer treatment helps patients live better and longer. Our program incorporates scientific evidence and best practices from clinical medicine, nutrition sciences, cognitive neuroscience and behavioral psychology.
Our program pairs the patient with a registered oncology dietitian who offers ongoing support and guidance throughout the duration of the cancer treatment plan. Ideally, patients enter the program at diagnosis or early in their treatment plan to take a proactive approach to address potential treatment side effects. In a weekly call our dietitians monitor key indicators of the patient's physiology. Every patient's situation will be different in a myriad of ways: diet preferences, treatment tolerance, stress level, fitness, weight, caregiver support. This one-on-one approach with a trusted clinician who understands the individual and the likely trajectory of their treatment plan empowers patients to take an active role in their chemo or radiation plan.
