The Cancer Wellness Support Penrith Valley Centre opened in May 2016 after Robyn Yates OAM and the Board saw a real need to deliver the same services to the community as the Blue Mountains community were already being offered.
The Centre is conveniently located at 56 Warwick Street in Penrith – far enough away from the hustle and the bustle of the shopping precinct. When you step through the door to our centre, you feel like you’ve just arrived home! There is a sense of peace and tranquillity with soothing oils diffusing and calm music playing softly in the background.
Shelley Fitzpatrick, our manager, has been here since we opened our doors to the community. Our small grey cottage offers our clients and carers, individual therapies of oncology massage, counselling, reflexology, Lymphoedema management and support. Our group sessions which are held either weekly or bi-weekly include yoga, qi gong, wise moves and support groups. We also offer workshops in art therapy and mindfulness meditation throughout the year.
The Centre has a wide range of books, DVD’s and CD’s which our members can borrow. We also have an extensive range of wigs and headwear. Helen our ‘wig lady’ is available by appointment to offer support and guidance when choosing your headwear.
Penrith Valley Centre is open Monday to Friday 10am to 4pm and would welcome your enquiries on 4721 1317.
We have a COVID-19 safety plan and are committed to keep you safe.
