recCARES Cancer Recovery Program – UPMC Pinnacle joins Littiz recCenter in support of new program
Lititz recCenter is launching recCARES, a Cancer Recover Support program to help cancer survivors thrive! UPMC Pinnacle recently joined Lititz recCenter with support for a spring 2018 pilot program to engage community members who are currently receiving treatment for cancer.
recCARES at Lititz recCenter emphasizes the physical aspects of cancer recovery during treatment. Often treatment, surgery, or other cancer interventions limit a patient’s physical activity. Once in recovery, regaining motion, strength, coordination and flexibility is just as important as – and is beneficial to – restored mental and emotional health for cancer survivors who are building their way back to health.
Low impact movement, exercise, balance and flexibility are at the core of the program, however, social and emotional support for cancer patients will also be a benefit of group programs. recCARES participants will have the chance to work with a Lititz recCenter Ambassador who is trained and certified to coach and plan a successful recovery program with individuals. Participants can tailor their physical recovery plan to meet their goals and timeline, and progress at their own pace as their treatment plan allows.
Participants who are cancer survivors, currently in treatment, with a physician’s referral to recCARES, will be eligible for the program for up to 12 weeks. In this time, a patient will develop a plan for independent and continued progress toward their recovery beyond recCARES. There will be no charge to referred patients to participate in the first 12 weeks of select group classes, indoor walking, and up to two personal training sessions with certified staff at Lititz recCenter.
Lititz recCenter staff are looking forward to this unique opportunity to work with recCARES participants in a friendly and supportive program tailored to the patients’ special needs.
