Cancer Recovery Care
A Multi-Faceted Process • Home Care
Adult Home Health Care provides cancer recovery care with in-home caregivers for the residence of the Greater San Diego, CA area. There are over a hundred types of cancers, each with its own behaviors, treatments, and symptoms. As technology and research advance, so do treatment options; however, one thing is certain: more and more patients are choosing home care as part of their treatment.
Adult Home Health Care Can Help!
Given the various treatments available for cancer patients, it can be challenging to find the appropriate level of care for you or your loved one. That’s why Adult Home Health Care has a variety of services at your disposal.
Despite its non-medical nature, companionship care can be a crucial part of a cancer patient’s treatment. Adult Home Health Care’s Companionship Care option can be made to suit your specific needs. One of the challenges of cancer (as well as the treatment process) is maintaining high spirits. There are many ups and downs, but with the right help, we can ensure that the ups outweigh the downs!
At Adult Home Health Care, we understand the necessity of keeping, not just your body in good health, but your mind as well. As such, our home care team offers you stimulating, intellectual conversation, mental awareness stimulation, aid in selecting and/or reading thoughtful or entertaining books, and puzzle making and building. Our team consists of individuals whose range of conversation is varied and well-versed, so engaging with them is easy and pleasurable!
Adult Home Health Care also recognizes the importance of family and friends in a patient’s life, but cancer treatments that leave a patient fatigued or weak make it challenging to spend time with those most important to us. Our Personal Care Attendants can help you plan get-togethers, schedule meetings, or coordinate small events with you and your family. With us by your side, you can attend those weekly bridge game nights with your friends, or that weekly Sunday night family dinner. We understand having cancer can affect your life, but we can help you cope through this trying time.
Household and Personal Care
Once a medical doctor determines that home care will be beneficial to the patient’s recovery, Adult Home Health Care can begin working with you and your family in developing a personalized care plan. Here are a few things to think about when considering which household and personal care management services you’ll need:
- Adult Home Health Care has an on-call Registered Nurse (RN) and a Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN) to assist you with your medication management and managing your home care recovery.
- Side effects of treatment- some cancer treatments, like chemotherapy or radiation therapy, can cause nausea, fever, vomiting, and/or fatigue. How will those side effects interrupt your daily life? Dressing, bathing, grooming and toilet use: all of these can become challenging daily activities to complete on your own.
- Appliances in the home that need regular upkeep or maintenance.
- Pets and plants need regular care, so if you have any pets or plants, it is important to take them into consideration when preparing your care plan.
Adult Home Health Care can help you with all of these services and more! Our Caregivers can assist you with homemaking such as vacuuming, laundry, preparing meals, grocery shopping, etc.
Assisted Transportation Service
Depending on your treatment options, driving will become difficult, or even impossible. This doesn’t mean that you have to be confined to your home or bed! Participating in social activities, maintaining your spirituality and religion, and running errands can all still be a part of your daily life. But, securing transportation is pertinent. Cancer Recovery Care is there for you!
Our team of professionals can drive you to:
- Special Events
- Club Meetings
- Religious Services
- Family Gatherings
