When someone you love is undergoing cancer treatment, life can become complicated very quickly. Setting aside the emotional toll that a cancer diagnosis takes, there can be a lot to juggle, from appointments to medications to the physical and psychological impacts of the diagnosis and treatment. It can easily become overwhelming. Luckily, home care services during cancer treatment can help.
Frequently, a family member or close friend becomes the primary caregiver for an individual following a cancer diagnosis. The role of a family caregiver is wide ranging and can include a variety of responsibilities, including but not limited to transportation to doctors’ appointments, communicating with healthcare providers, administering medication, emotional support, and assistance with making decisions regarding care.
Family caregivers are often responsible for coordinating all aspects of care for a loved one, making sure medications are taken on time, and keeping track of important paperwork. It’s a big responsibility, and while some family caregivers find their role rewarding, others can find it emotionally taxing. For family caregivers who live at a distance or who are also juggling care for children, a career, and managing a household, coordinating care for a loved one with cancer can be especially challenging.
That’s where a professional caregiver from Visiting Care Giving Services can step in and offer assistance. Specially trained in providing care to those living with cancer or another chronic health condition, in addition to helping with all of the tasks carried out by family caregivers, professional caregivers can also help with personal care needs, meal planning and preparation, light housekeeping, and more.
