Cancer Center Social Work
Having cancer or a blood disorder can be life changing. Many new questions and concerns can arise. The BMC Cancer Center is committed to helping patients and families with these concerns. We have a team of specially trained professionals who work together. Our oncology social worker, Teresa Caldwell, LICSW, OSW-C, ACHP-SW, is a part of that team. She assists in a variety of ways. This includes: providing support and guidance, providing education on what resources are available, helping with financial issues, facilitating decisions about work, life, and family issues as well as speaking with patients and families about worries, feelings and emotions.
Appointments with the oncology social worker can be made directly or by asking any member of the team for a referral. Teresa can be seen at the time of diagnosis, during treatment, following treatment or at any other time there is a concern.
Please call 413-443-6000 for more information or to make an appointment.
