The Healing Garden
Our healing garden was built in 1999 and is located adjacent to the chemotherapy treatment room of the Cancer Centre. It is used as a public space for patients, visitors, and staff and is used by a therapeutic horticulture pilot program for activities. Therapeutic goals of the program include increasing hope, bringing a sense of control, restoring cognitive attention, and increasing a sense of empowerment.

Holy Redeemer cbcc_redeemer
The Holy Redeemer Convent offers a place for cancer patients to stay while they are receiving treatment. Some patients have to travel quite some distance to the Cape Breton Cancer Centre for their treatments and travelling expenses can be very costly. The patient is provided with a room to stay in, meals and many other accommodations.

 

 

 

 

The Meloney Family Comfort Room
The comfort room is located on the third floor of the Cape Breton Regional Hospital. To get to the comfort room, take elevator 7 which is located just outside of the cancer centre and it is on the right when you get off the elevator. Patients can come to the comfort room and use our complementary services such as Reiki Therapy, Wig Bank and Look Good Feel Better. An appointment is required for these services.
