Our mission is to improve and enhance the health and well-being of our community members through programs and education; inspiring every person to live their best life now.
As an outreach program of Confluence Health, the Wellness Place offers FREE support and services for cancer patients and survivors in Chelan, Douglas, Okanogan and Grant counties. From initial diagnosis through every stage of treatment, we are here to help you!
Some of the cancer support services we provide:
Gas cards to help get to cancer treatments, wigs for those losing their hair during treatment, overnight lodging for patients, nutritional supplements, quilts, hats and scarves for warmth, pharmaceutical assistance, support groups, and so much more!
We also offer FREE exercise classes to those 65 and older. The Stay Active and Independent for Life (SAIL) program was developed specifically for our aging population. Performing exercises that improve strength, balance and fitness is the single most important activity adults can do to stay active and reduce their chances of falling. Join trained volunteer fitness instructors in a series of gentle yet effective exercises for seniors age 65 and older.
