The Sobey Cancer Support Centre

The Sobey Cancer Support Centre is a place of reflection, support and empowerment for cancer patients. The Centre includes The Dr Susan K. Roberts Lodge That Gives, The Programming and Wellness Area and Nova Scotia offices of the Canadian Cancer Society.

Covid-19 continues to be a very real threat to public health. The Canadian Cancer Society has and will continue to follow Public Health guidance and has implemented a number of changes at all Lodges across the country. We have followed evidence-based information and advice and are confident that new changes put in place will protect those who stay and work at the Lodge.

Several new measures have been put in place to minimize COVID-19 related risks. The Lodge has instituted new screening protocols for anyone staying at the Lodge; enhanced cleaning protocols; installed protective barriers, and; will provide personal protective equipment to Lodge staff and residents.

The Lodge has converted to a non-shared room model. This means that unless a patient is travelling with one support person, they will not be sharing a room. Most of our common areas remain closed or have limited use and occupancy.

For the time being, all programs including our wig and prostheses banks continue to be suspended until further notice.
