Education And Support

We want to help you access all of the care and services you need to aid your healing process. If you have prostate cancer, here are some services that may benefit you:

  • An oncology nurse navigator who knows a great deal about the needs of people with prostate cancer will be available to listen to you, answer your questions, and help you understand next steps in your treatment. Your navigator also will find resources for you and your family as you move through diagnosis, treatment, and beyond. Your navigator and care team members will partner to provide support for you every step of the way.
  • Premier Health’s Cancer Genetic Counseling Program provides a comprehensive risk assessment for hereditary cancer. With a simple blood test, we help determine whether the cancer in someone’s family is hereditary. If the cancer is hereditary, our genetic counselors can make personalized recommendations for ongoing care.
  • Our free Prostate Cancer Support Groups offer speakers on a variety of topics, support, and group discussion about living with prostate cancer or recovering from treatment. Family members and friends are welcome. One group meets the second Monday of each month, 6 to 7:30 p.m., at Miami Valley Hospital North, Rehab Gym Conference Room (call for directions or ask at the Rehab Center front desk).

We start with an initial assessment and physical fitness testing. We ask about your individual goals and create an individualized treatment plan that incorporates a variety of aerobic exercises, strength training, balance, and stretching. The group classes provide guided exercise in a friendly, fun atmosphere. We require a physician referral to participate, but if you call us directly, we can reach out to your physician.
