“At the age of 59, I was diagnosed with gastrointestinal cancer. From scheduling multiple calls with me and my family over two years to helping me understand test results and manage the side effects of chemotherapy, my Nurse Case Manager supported my family and I with everything we needed throughout my cancer journey. I was able to work part-time from home when not on active treatment, and my family and I felt empowered and emotionally supported by our nurse navigator.”
“I was very concerned about the onset of new back and neck pain and how it was impacting by ability to function. When I was diagnosed with possible myelomalcia – softening of the spine – my Nurse Case Manager really helped me understand my diagnosis and treatment plan. With ongoing phone support, we also discussed other potential causes of the pain, alternative treatments for my pain like physio and massage, and what my MRI results meant. My Nurse Case Manager also helped me prepare for appointments by ensuring I had the right questions to ask and access to local community services during the pandemic. Carepath’s larger network even helped me secure local specialist appointments faster. Thanks to my Nurse Case Manager, my spouse and I felt supported and in control and I was able to remain actively at work throughout diagnosis and treatment.”
“As a 36-year-old married father of two, I didn’t know that low energy, trouble sleeping and fighting with my spouse was related to anxiety and depression until I contacted Carepath for help. My Nurse Case Manager connected me with the right clinician to get a diagnosis and then helped facilitate the development of a treatment plan that included medication and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). I was able to access virtual care for my weekly counselling sessions, and my Nurse Case Manager communicated with my family doctor throughout. My spouse and I were also referred to couples therapy and our relationship is improving. Plus, I was able to return to work after 8 weeks, reassured that I could reconnect with my therapist, if needed.”
“I contacted Carepath when my 70-year-old mother with early onset dementia needed to be moved into assisted living. I wanted her to be close to family, but that meant moving her from Halifax to Toronto, and I had no idea where to start on making the arrangements. From ensuring my mother had a PSW in Halifax to facilitating the OHIP application and arranging the transport to Toronto, my Nurse Case Manager assisted me with all the details by connecting me with all the right people and places. I then got help finding a long-term care home and was able to move my mother into a place she felt supported by the staff and her family. I thought I would have to take a leave from work to take care of my mother, but my Nurse Case Manager helped me feel empowered to make informed healthcare decisions, so I could continue working, knowing I was doing the best for my mother’s quality of life.”
