Cancer / Oncology
Advances in cancer treatment and changing health care systems have led to shorter hospital stays and the elderly being cared for at home. Often times, cancer patients wish to be in a more comfortable and secure environment such as their own home. Although a sad reality of life, many terminally ill patients intend to stay at home as they do not want to be separated from their familiar surroundings, relatives and loved ones. Our home care providers assist patients to achieve this desire. This frequently involves a team-oriented approach which entails doctors, nurses, social workers, physical therapists, family members, and others.
