Turning Point

Turning Point is a place to meet, listen, share, learn and encourage.

Since your medical needs are being addressed, we focus on the emotional, social and psychological challenges that come along with a serious or chronic illness. Whether called classes, programs or activities, everything we do helps you adjust to your new normal.

Wherever you're receiving healthcare, our doors are open to you. All programs are supported entirely by our generous donors.

Our classes include:

  • Chemo brain
  • Yoga in chairs
  • Social Security disability
  • Caregiver support group
  • Weekly meditation classes
  • Art and writing classes
  • Parent consultations
  • T'ai chi
  • Nutrition classes

Through classes, activities and education, Turning Point helps participants increase resilience so they may live life to the fullest, even while experiencing a serious illness or chronic disease.
