Many cancer patients feel more comfortable receiving care at home so that they’re not separated from family, friends and familiar surroundings. But cancer is a condition that can change relationships and require families to address new issues.
In-home care is often a great way to alleviate some of the pressures of family caregiving when it comes to cancer, allowing you to focus on emotional support instead of the details of daily activities. Right at Home caregivers can help with any of the Home Care Services, as well as support hospice care where available.
Our caretaker services for cancer recovery include:
- Supplement Hospice services with supportive care where available
- Development of comfort measures
- Respite care for family caregivers
I want you to know how much we have enjoyed our caregiver and what a godsend she has been -- very calming, speaks softly, and doesn't let Mom get the best of her. I had to take Mom to the doctor on Monday and the caregiver went with us. I couldn't have made it without her. Mom is harder to get along with these days which I know is common as health problems worsen but it was really beneficial to have a caregiver's "voice of reason". Mom really responded to her and that took the pressure off of me. Having our caregiver is such a relief to me.
