What's Included In Cancer Home Care?

NINE ESSENTIAL TYPES OF CARE

You may need cancer care at home following a period of treatment or surgery. Depending on the severity of your condition, we can implement live in cancer care for everyday tasks, and more involved personal support for people who need assistance on a more regular basis. Palliative care may also be required to ensure family members can remain within familiar surroundings during the last phases of their life. During what can be highly emotional times, we make sure to provide cancer care at home which comes both unobtrusive and respectful.

Our Essential Services for Cancer Care at Home

Support With Personal Care There could be a wide range of activities which may become difficult to complete, in which case our team will ensure you are supported along the way. This could involve personal care, where we will assist clients in the most dignified way possible. Support to Continue Daily Life You may find it difficult to undertake personal tasks, therefore requiring some form of assistance. Should this be the case, you can rest assured we will assist people with the utmost respect and dignity throughout. Accompanying Clients to Appointments A cancer diagnosis means you are likely to require a number of appointments with doctors. If you feel support is needed, we are more than happy to accompany you. Keeping Family Updated on Health and Wellbeing It can be a hugely worrying time for close family members as you fight against cancer, so we will make sure they are regularly informed about the progress you have made, but also major changes which may have occurred with your condition. Shopping/Prescription Collection Support with shopping and prescription collection can also be offered, allowing our clients to receive the medication and supplies they need for each week Activities and Social Functions Encouraging an active lifestyle can do wonders to your well-being, and playing your part in social functions will help you feel far less isolated. Ensuring Medication is Taken on Time Medication is vitally important for just about any support measures, and not least cancer, so we will make sure you are keeping up to date with everything that needs to be taken and always on time. Liaise with Medical and Healthcare Professionals It’s important that we have a full understanding of your condition from a medical perspective, which is why we keep in regular contact with any healthcare professionals who are also involved with your care.
