Benefits of Cancer Care
Cancer treatment can often be a delicate process, with many steps between diagnosis and recovery. Some patients will require surgery, while others require things like chemotherapy, which can add up to put a lot of pressure on a person. No matter the circumstances, just about every stage of the cancer treatment process calls for heightened caution and awareness.
While it’s possible to make a full recovery from cancer without in-home care, the support provided by Visiting Angels has numerous benefits. Cancer can leave people feeling very vulnerable, and that’s why we strive to provide care that makes you feel healthy, happy, and secure. Rather than having to manage your daily life with cancer by yourself, our cancer care guarantees that you always have a pair of helping hands nearby.
With our in-home cancer care, you receive the assistance you need from the comfort of your own home. Our in-home care professionals are trained to help you around the house in any way they can so you don’t have to risk any unnecessary strains or injuries. You deserve to get all of the rest you need during your treatment, and we’re prepared to work with you and your family to make your full relaxation a reality.
Our Cancer Care Services
Not everyone experiences cancer the same way, that’s why we try to adapt our care to your specific needs. From breast cancer to colon cancer, you can count on receiving top-notch care from our team of caregiving professionals. We’re with you every step of the way, so you never have to go through cancer alone.
At Visiting Angels, your comfort, health, and safety are our top priorities. That’s why we ensure that our cancer care services are the most comprehensive they can possibly be, so the only thing you have to focus on is rest and recovery. From housekeeping to medication reminders, our professional caregivers are here to assist you every step of the way.
Below are some of the most common cancer care services we provide in the San Fernando Valley.
Your home is supposed to be the place where you can rest and relax, and maintaining that space is especially important after any kind of medical procedure. Cancer treatment can be a very tiring experience that leaves some patients with limited mobility, making tasks like bending down or reaching high areas very difficult. Our housekeeping services ensure that you get the rest you need after cancer treatment while still getting to enjoy a clean home.
Our housekeeping services include:
Daily chores like sweeping, vacuuming, dusting, watering plants, etc.
Cleaning and disinfecting toilets, showers, sinks, and countertops
Cleaning out the fridge
Cancer treatment often requires a patient to take a series of medications, including pain medication, that can become difficult to manage all at once. Regular medication can be vital to every stage of cancer care, so we help you stay on track by providing medication reminders, so you never miss a dose.
If your cancer treatment has left you unable to drive, it’s best to leave it to someone else to prevent your recovery from being jeopardized. Attempting to drive during or after cancer treatment can be dangerous for you and others on the road, and that’s why our cancer care specialists are here to drive you wherever you need to go. Visiting Angels will bring you to any medical appointments, prescription pick-up, social events, general errands, and more.
Your health is our priority, and that extends to general hygiene and physical maintenance. In addition to keeping any surgical wounds or ports clean, our caregivers are prepared to assist you with a variety of personal care tasks. These services include showering, grooming, getting dressed, and using the bathroom.
In addition to personal care and housekeeping services, we provide food preparation services to ensure that you’re properly fed during your cancer treatment. It can be easy to forget to eat during recovery, especially if it’s left you with a loss of appetite, but getting the right nutrients every day can be a critical part of a full recovery. Our experienced caregivers can work with you to plan, make, and potentially feed you well-balanced meals that fulfill your specific needs.
Receiving cancer treatment can be a long and lonely process, as it often requires patients to stay in their homes for an extended amount of time. This can be especially lonely if a patient doesn’t have any friends or family nearby, but that’s where Visiting Angels can step in to help. Our cancer care includes companionship that allows you to still be social while you recover from any procedures. Whether you want to play games, read books, or just have someone to talk to, we’re here to help make your recovery experience as enjoyable as possible.
How Long is Cancer Care?
While it’s common to think cancer care is a long-term situation, Visiting Angels also provides short-term cancer care. Our caregivers can provide care for the duration of your chemotherapy, but if you need a caregiver to help you acclimate to your first few rounds of chemo, we can still help. If you just had a procedure and need some help around the house for a week, our caregivers are here for you. No matter how long or how short you need support, Visiting Angels provides compassionate and holistic cancer care.
