By bringing together in one place anything that can provide active support to those persons affected by cancer, together with the Fondation OTIUM we have developed a simple concept that meets an actual need.


First Centre OTIUM in Geneva

Established in 2018 at Geneva by the Fondation OTIUM, the Centre OTIUM offers a warm and welcoming setting for counselling, support and care services in order to enhance the physical, social and mental well-being of its beneficiaries.

Around 40 available therapies

Proposed individually, as part of a workshop or group classes, therapies as well as the skills of the therapists and counsellors available at the Centre are verified and approved by a Multidisciplinary Advisory Committee, comprising doctors and experts. The Centre OTIUM also proposes an outpatient oncology rehabilitation programme that has been validated by the Swiss Ligue contre le cancer (Anti-cancer Association).

A place to meet and exchange experiences

In addition to its activities and the events it organises, the Centre OTIUM provides its beneficiaries with a place to stay and meet so as to relax and exchange experiences. A cafeteria, a garden and a library dedicated to cancer and its treatments are also made available.
