Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the U.S. and the disease itself, as well as the treatment, can have very serious effects for those affected. People who have cancer may experience symptoms at any time and these symptoms are sometimes severe enough to put them in the hospital. It is also common for those with cancer to undergo regular treatments that can have debilitating side effects. If you have a family member or loved one stricken with cancer, you know how important it is to provide as much support as possible.
Assisting Hands provides cancer recovery and support services to help families care for loved ones who are undergoing cancer treatment or recovering from cancer. There is so much that goes into caring for someone with cancer and you can trust our trained and professional caregivers to provide a range of services to help ease the recovery process.
Cancer Support – Home Care
The caregivers of Assisting Hands are not only committed to helping you or your loved one through cancer treatments, but also to forming a bond with you and your family as you fight the disease. We will provide physical caregiving and moral support to help you through the side effects of cancer treatments such as radiation, chemotherapy, and surgery. Common side effects of these treatments include pain, infection, nausea, and anemia among others and they can be quite severe. We help ease these side effects by providing a comfortable, low stress environment and assisting with certain daily activities from light housekeeping to help getting dressed.
We understand that everyone’s battle with cancer is different and we can create a personalized cancer support plan to ensure that you or your loved one receives effective care and support from our caregivers. Our cancer recovery services may include the following:
- Care management including scheduling of doctor’s appointments and transportation
- Communication with family members regarding treatments and progress
- Post treatment care to help ease the side effects
- Medication pickups
- Meal preparation
- Light housekeeping
- Assistance with personal activities such as bathing and getting dressed
With good care and moral support, it is possible to beat cancer. Our caregivers at Assisting Hands will do everything possible to give you or your loved one your best chance at fighting the disease.
