What are cancer care services at home?
Coming to terms with any illness can be one of the toughest things someone can face. If you or your loved one is affected by cancer and require day-to-day care and support, at-home care services may be beneficial to you.
Cancer care services at home are care and support services that cancer patients receive while remaining in their own homes. At-home cancer care services are designed to ensure individuals maintain the highest quality of life, remaining largely independent, but also having access to the care and support services that will benefit them during their diagnosis. These services can be nursing support, personal care, companionship, home help, and general emotional support.
There are lots of benefits for the health and well-being of individuals when remaining at home. Cancer home care services are designed to assist and support individuals in their own homes. This type of care is catered to the individual and can be as little as once a week or everyday assistance. Care plans of this type will be created for the individual and their unique requirements.
