Patient Support Services and Resources
A diagnosis of myeloma can be overwhelming and create uncertainty for everyone involved. Our program supports patients and their loved ones with compassion and sensitivity to diversity and individual needs.
Our experienced social workers provide extensive cancer support services with a focus on a comprehensive patient care experience that addresses emotional, practical, and social needs. They offer supportive counseling services, wellness programs, educational materials, and access to resources and special programs both within and outside the Mount Sinai Health System.
If you are admitted to the hospital, our social workers will support you throughout your stay and will assist with planning your discharge and developing a plan for services that you might need when you return home. They will coordinate services to ensure a smooth transition from inpatient care back to the outpatient setting.
Your health care team can answer any questions you and your family may have about multiple myeloma and related diseases.
One of our social workers, Yu Mee Song, LCSW, leads a Multiple Myeloma Support Program for patients and caregivers. For information, contact Yu Mee at YuMee.Song@mountsinai.org or 212-824-8771.
