Cancer Support Community offers a wide variety of support services to people with cancer and their loved ones, all completely free of charge and in a home-like setting. Services include support groups, stress management sessions, educational programs, exercise sessions, nutrition workshops and social events. Anyone who walks through the doors of the Cancer Support Community is welcomed and encouraged to participate in any or all that we offer.

St. Luke’s Hospice

484-526-1100 or 1-800-211-4788 (toll-free)
Hospice’s interdisciplinary team of doctors, nurse, social workers, chaplains, aides and volunteers serve individuals in our community by seamlessly offering compassionate, holistic care through their journey of living. The goal of Hospice lies in the belief that each person has the right to live life with dignity, as pain-free as possible and meeting their goals of care. In most cases, this care is provided in the patient’s own home or in a nursing facility they call home. Sometimes, short-term acute care is provided at St. Luke’s Hospice House in Bethlehem.
