Getting outside and experiencing nature has health and wellbeing benefits. Join us outside this summer!
When I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012, my daughters were still young and we had no extended family to rely on in town. Having Stewart’s Caring Place nearby was such a comfort and blessing for me and for my family. It is time for us to give back!
The culture of Stewart’s Caring Place is one where every person is seen as whole. We have the unique privilege to walk with them on their wellness journey.
Stewart’s Caring Place has been such a blessing to our family. They have such a caring staff and go beyond the call of duty to help everyone that is sent their way.
Thanks to Stewart’s for their generosity and privilege to tour the new home. It is absolutely tranquil and uplifting. Tears filled my eyes as I took in the magnitude of what I saw. So thankful to be healthy and not need the services and so thankful the services are there for those with cancer.
With the social isolation of the pandemic, Stewart’s Caring Place has become a safe (online) harbor! I was really struggling, as so many of us are, when I discovered that Stewart’s was offering online programs in yoga, strength training, essential oils, and more! Participating in these on a weekly basis has been a lifeline, physically and emotionally.
Stewart’s helps participants embrace “possibilities” at every stage of their personal journey. Their approach is one of encouragement, compassion and support through the dynamic programs and services they offer.
