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
We started working with Right at Home about a month ago to provide services for my mother who has Alzheimer's and to provide support to my father (her primary caregiver) six days a week. So far we have had an excellent experience. The caregivers are supportive, caring people and have given my Dad a much deserved break as well as providing knowledgeable care for my Mom. I have also been impressed with the structures and processes put in place to insure that we get consistent, reliable care. Our relationship with Right at Home is still new but we couldn't be happier.
