The home of a person with cancer is its own planet -- each has its own rhythm of schedules and treatment plans. Add in jobs, personal tasks, household chores, and nursing needs, and it can quickly seem like an ever-expanding galaxy to their loved ones.
It’s normal for all of that to be too much for family and friends to handle on their own. Some tasks, like giving pain medication, require special training. Wading through insurance claims can soak up hours. Meanwhile, meals, laundry, and other housework can pile up. Hiring outside help can bring respite for everyone’s benefit.
With the help of a From the Heart Home Care caregiver, your loved one can better handle personal care, such as getting in and out of bed, walking, bathing, and dressing. Some of our caregivers have had special training and are qualified to give more complex services if supervised by a registered nurse.
In addition to personal care, a professional caregiver can do light household tasks for your loved one, like laundry, meals, housekeeping, and shopping. These services are done to help maintain your house rather than give health care. Our agencies will assign an in-home caregiver for these tasks along with other services.
Cancer in-home care is more than personal care and household care. Our home care agency can sit with you, give emotional support, and help with personal care, paperwork, and getting to and from doctor visits.
