We strive to give exceptional caregiving services to cancer patients, provide them with comfort, and help their family develop a greater peace of mind.
In the United States, cancer is the second leading cause of death. Necessary treatments are known to be painful and result in other ramifications, but we have care professionals who can help cancer patients get through this tough time.
Cancer Caregivers Ease Day-to-Day Activities
Whether it be on a day-to-day scale or in the long-term picture, there are severe implications when a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer.
Our caregivers are determined to lessen the burden for affected families with our cancer recovery and support services.
Cancer treatments can come with many severe negative side effects, and cancer patients may require medical services seemingly at random.
It is helpful to have someone in the home who can provide care at all times. Such a task is difficult for many family members, because they have their own lives and responsibilities.
That’s where we at Assisting Hands Home Care come in.
Cancer Support and In-Home Care During Treatment and Recovery
At Assisting Hands Home Care, we employ specially trained and well-qualified care professionals that can assist cancer patients. We know it can be stressful for the cancer patient and his/her family, and we provide such services to help as much as possible.
We start by developing relationships in order to establish trust, which extends to better overall care and companionship. From there, we help with everything the individual needs assistance with, including moral support and care during treatments and recovery. Common treatments include the following:
Following such treatments, many side effects are possible: anemia, infections, nausea, pain, and more. Our caregivers have been prepared for all of this and help whenever needed.
We are aware that cancer can make it very difficult — or even impossible — for patients with cancer to care for themselves, so our caretakers will also assist with general tasks throughout the day.
Variety of Services Available
Our cancer care professionals communicate with cancer patients and their family to figure out what non-medical services are necessary. We can help with the following tasks and more:
- Care management (scheduling appointments, picking up prescriptions, checking that medications are taken, and more)
- Changing clothes
- Meal preparation
- Moderate housekeeping help
- Morning and night preparation
- Personal hygiene (bathing, grooming, using the bathroom)
- Post-treatment care
- Transportation to and from doctor’s appointments
