Cancer is one of the last things that anybody wants to hear from a doctor. The ramifications are severe and life-altering. It is the second leading cause of death in the United States, and often requires treatments that can have lasting effects.
Then there are the symptoms that can arise out of nowhere to put the affected individuals back in the hospital for an unknown period of time.
At Assisting Hands Home Care, we help individuals diagnosed with cancer, get through their day-to-day lives with our cancer care services. We provide these individuals, and their family members, with as much support as possible.
Cancer Caregivers Provide Help Through Both Treatment and Recovery
Our cancer recovery and support services are designed to help families care for their loved one who is suffering from cancer. We do this through both the treatment and recovery process.
We fully understand the high levels of support required to provide cancer patients with the care they need, and the fact that family members cannot always be available on a moment’s notice because of their own obligations.
When you work with us, your loved one will benefit from the services of a highly trained and compassionate caregiver who can help them through their days.
Cancer Support and Home Care
At Assisting Hands Home Care, we do what we can to develop relationships with all of our clients; however, this is especially true in the case of cancer patients.
These scenarios are rightfully troubling, which is why we make a point to develop a lasting bond with family members and the affected individual. We want to give the patient a companion they can trust during these troubling times, not somebody who is intrusive.
We provide physical caregiving and moral support during treatments (e.g. radiation, surgery, chemotherapy, etc.) and the recovery process. Infections, pain, nausea, and anemia are all possibilities. Our caregivers are aware of this and are prepared to help.
A Wide Range of Home Care Services is Available to Cook County Residents
Our trusted caregivers also help with everyday tasks. From getting up and ready in the morning to getting to bed at night, we can assist clients as needed. Our goal is to provide comfort and peace of mind. Depending on the unique needs of the individual, we can assist with the following and more:
- Scheduling for, and transportation to and from, doctor’s appointments (we will always communicate with family members)
- Post-treatment care
- Meal preparation
- Medication pickups
- Light housekeeping
- Personal hygiene
- Changing clothes
- Similar day-to-day tasks
Live-in and Hourly Services Available
Taking care of an individual with cancer is hard. Letting someone else takes care of them is even harder. People often times share with us they feel guilty for that or like they are cheating.
However, nothing can be further from the truth. If you are the one taking care of a love one you need some time for yourself to recharge or to get a good night sleep so you’re your best during the day. Or maybe you need help 24/7. Whatever the case is our experienced cancer caregivers can help.
They all have passed an extensive background check and are bonded and insured for your peace of mind. What’s more, some of them are bilingual so if you need a caretaker that speaks Spanish, Polish, or any other language we can provide one.
