Additional Information:

Chai Cancer Care is the Jewish Community’s Cancer Support Organisation, enabling patients, their families and friends to cope with the impact of a cancer diagnosis. Chai’s expertise and services are for the benefit of everyone involved.

Most of us will have to deal with the effects of a cancer diagnosis at some time in our lives; either at first hand or through someone close to us.

Chai’s reputation for providing a highly professional and caring service continues to grow. Increasingly, cancer specialists, GPs and educationalists are turning to us as an innovative model of excellence in supportive cancer care.

Chai provides a range of services in Essex and Southend.

These include: Counselling for individuals, couples and families, Acupuncture, Aromatherapy, Massage, Play Therapy, Physiotherapy and Reflexology.

Chai’s services can be accessed from Lily House in Essex, or in your home via our Home Support Service, subject to geographical location. We will visit you and explain the services that Chai can provide in your home, hospital or hospice and suggest how we can best meet your needs. If you are not in reach of the Chai site in Essex and Southend, you can still benefit from our expertise and care through our Telephone and Skype Service. This service is provided both nationally and internationally and includes:

  • Counselling for cancer patients and their loved ones
  • Nutritional and Dietary Advice Chai’s nutritionist provides dietary advice and recommendations for both patients and carers.
  • Advisory Services and Citizens Advice Bureau Chai can advise you on how to access the best NHS and social care provision and advise on state benefits from entitlement to assistance with application forms.
