Every cancer survivor needs continued care in order to prevent, manage and heal the physical and psychological conditions that can arise post-treatment. The STAR (Survivorship Training and Rehab) Program Certification is just one more way we can provide that necessary comprehensive oncology care to improve your health and well being whether your cancer is cured, in remission or you live with cancer as a chronic disease.
Jupiter Medical Center is proud to be the first facility in Florida to offer the STAR Program for oncology rehabilitation. Our staff of licensed physical, occupational and speech therapists, a dietician, oncology counselor, massage therapist, exercise specialists and oncology nurses are implementing research-based protocols proven to help you optimally heal and function.
We are uniquely qualified to offer premium oncology rehabilitation services to you during treatment or if you are living with its aftermath. Our program has been created to help you physically and emotionally heal from the side-effects of treatments. We provide you with the most comprehensive rehabilitation care available and all of our services are reimbursable by health insurance providers. Having access to world-class follow up care, without added medical costs, will allow you to regain your health and get your life back on track.
A cancer diagnosis can be traumatic, and so can life-saving treatments. Our STAR Rehabilitation program can help you cope with symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, insomnia, memory loss, fear, anxiety and depression. Jupiter Medical Center's STAR Program offers important physical and psychological rehabilitation so you can recover more quickly and more completely than you would otherwise. Feeling well and being able to resume normal day-to-day activities is essential to enjoying a good quality of life for you and your family.
We serve all survivors in need, whether you are beginning treatment, finished with treatment, or experiencing late effects or unresolved issues from long-ago treatment. Our program is open to everyone no matter the prognosis, cancer stage or phase of recovery. Newly diagnosed patients may want to increase their strength and endurance and prevent future medical problems; survivors living with cancer as a chronic disease may come to us for help managing treatment-related conditions; and individuals who are cured or in remission may enroll in our program with the goal of boosting their immune systems so that they can heal as well as possible.
Our rehabilitation care, based on conventional medicine, is offered by a knowledgeable and sensitive medical staff, specially trained to treat survivors of all forms of cancer. They are medical experts at the top of their fields and comprise a variety of disciplines:
