CANCER CARE, IN YOUR OWN HOME

Living with, or recovering from, cancer can be a scary and emotional time. The impact of cancer on the human body can be overwhelming, often leaving people feeling weak and struggling to carry out their day-to-day tasks. That’s why we want to make it as easy as possible for you to stay in your own home and retain as much normality as you can.

Whether you’re currently undergoing cancer treatment, you’re in the initial stages of recovery or you’re looking for palliative care at home, we’re here for you. Our compassionate caregivers are trained to provide the round-the-clock care that will allow you to remain as independent as possible.

Having an extra pair of hands around the house can make everyday living so much easier for cancer patients. From helping with medication management to providing emotional support, this type of care can greatly improve the overall wellbeing of patients.

And if your cancer care needs grow or change, our experienced care managers will review and adapt your plan to ensure you’re receiving exactly the level of support you need. Our aim is to keep you safe and happy in your own home for as long as possible.

What does our live-in home cancer care include?

Our live-in cancer care revolves around your needs, your routines and your home.

Bespoke care and support

Bespoke care and support

At Promedica24, we understand that every individual diagnosed with cancer has unique requirements. To maximise our services in the best possible way, we create individual care plans for each person we support, based on their specific needs.

Providing daily support

Providing daily support

Cancer patients frequently experience fatigue which can lead to substantial challenges with daily physical activities. In addition to general discomfort, patients may experience a loss of appetite or difficulty performing personal care tasks. A live-in carer can offer personalised support in these areas while also preserving the individual’s privacy and dignity.

Maintaining healthy routines

Maintaining healthy routines

Cancer therapy frequently includes lengthy procedures and a wide range of medications, which is why live-in carers give priority to sustaining essential weekly routines. Recognising this can bring reassurance not only to the individual but also to their family members, as they can be confident that everything is operating efficiently. They remain up-to-date with vital appointments and maintain regular contact with relevant healthcare professionals to ensure efficient and consistent care.

Combating loneliness

Combating loneliness

Having companionship can be an effective way to alleviate and prevent mental health issues. People may feel lonelier if their friends and family are busy. Engaging a live-in carer could be an optimal solution, given their training to address concerns such as loneliness and anxiety.

Reclaiming your social life

Reclaiming your social life

The emotional impact of cancer may dampen your enthusiasm for socialising, yet engaging in social activities can actually improve your mood. With the support of a live-in carer, you can explore these options, such as meeting friends or joining local clubs to feel more connected. Continuing with your life as best as possible can be a powerful way to reduce the negative emotions that often accompany the disease and move forward with a more positive outlook.

Providing additional support

Providing additional support

Carers can offer the extra encouragement you need to feel confident about trying something new. They’ll be attentive to your comfort level and won’t push you beyond it. With a range of activities available, including physical and mental exercises, our carers can help you find something you’ll enjoy. Whether you’d like to join a book club, go to the bingo, or attend meditation sessions at your local community centre, your live-in carer will be there to support you.
