Ljósið is a rehabilitation and support centre for people who have had cancer and their loved ones. Ljósið’s goal is that people receive specialized rehabilitation and support in building up their physical and mental strength with the assistance of professionals, in addition to receiving support in setting goals for themselves to increase day-to-day function and thus influence their overall quality of life.
Ljósið’s facilities are like a beautiful home where you can come experience a café atmosphere and chat with peers. To increase function and endurance, Ljósið offers diverse programming for people who have been diagnosed with cancer and their loved ones.
Ljósið’s activities run on weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in addition to specially organized courses on evenings and Saturdays. We are located at Langholtsvegur 43, 104 Reykjavík in the old Landsbankinn building.
