Getting the best medical care for a brain tumor is just part of the process that drives the healthiest outcomes.

Getting the best support services is the other.

Combining the Best in
Medical and Non-Medical Care

“What’s the process?” “Where do I start?” “What’s going to happen to me?” “How do I sequence appointments?” “Will my loved one be okay?”

“I’m scared. Where can I turn?”

At the Glasser Brain Tumor Center, our multidisciplinary team – including our social work navigator – answers these questions and more. We work closely with patients and their families, providing appointment scheduling, referrals and other support as well as the counseling that enables emotional and mental wellbeing.

Social Work Navigator Janet LeMonnier, LSW, meets with patients and their caregivers early on, getting to know them and the services they might need over time, including transportation to treatment, counseling for children and additive therapies such as yoga and mindfulness. Most important, Janet offers the counseling and emotional support only someone who understands the experience can provide.

“Supporting the best in medical care with the best in support services makes a real difference in health outcomes,” Janet shares. “We know that emotional wellbeing is critical to recovery, which is why we support the process as heavily from this non-medical side as we do from the medical one.”

To learn more about these non-medical support services, contact Janet LeMonnier, LSW, Social Work Navigator, at 908.522.5159.
