Specialist cancer care in the comfort of home
We understand that receiving a diagnosis of cancer is a major life-changing event. However, many people continue to live with cancer for years; still enjoying a good quality of life. We work with clients and their families to develop a care plan that is highly personalised and responsive to changing needs.
We provide a team of expertly trained professional carers to assist with the practical aspects of daily life, as well as with the emotional, medical and social support. Where required, we work with leading nursing companies to ensure that our holistic service is tailored to manage any complex medical procedures that may arise.
Cancer care expertise
We understand that being able to discuss a person's cancer care is important. Our carers are experienced in facilitating discussions about needs, preferences and wishes with respect and sensitivity.
The professional carers are trained to support health and wellbeing, devising nutrition plans, exercise or relaxation regimes and promoting activities and enjoyment where possible. Maintaining a positive outlook is important and our role of providing trusted emotional support is as important as providing professional care.
Specialist nursing and medical care
Supported by our specialist nurse, Dr. Penny Hibberd, our professional care teams support clients with nursing care at home. All our professional carers are qualified to manage and administer medications and support with a number of complex medical interventions.
We understand that complex medical care can require equipment and other adaptations to the home. Our dedicated regional care team will liaise with doctors, district nurses, OTs, physiotherapists and other health and social care professionals, to manage all health care needs to ensure a holistic and multi-disciplinary care plan is in place.
