Cancer Care in Whittier, CA
In-Home Caregivers for Terminally Ill in Los Angeles & Orange County
Individuals that have Cancer go through an experience that is life changing and can be quite a scare for the whole family. Cancer involves unregulated cell growth that can occur in any part of the body, forming a tumor that can spread to other areas of the body. Causes are mostly environmental and some types of Cancer include Brain Cancer, Breast Cancer, Colon Cancer, Lung Cancer, Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, Skin Cancer, Prostate Cancer, and other forms.
Radiation therapy, Chemotherapy, and surgery are the primary treatment options and can leave lasting side effects for years after treatment, which can be difficult to cope with. At A-1 Home Care, we specialize in providing Cancer Care for Elder and Senior survivors on a 24 hour Live-In Care or Hourly Care basis, no matter what level of personal care is needed.
Our caregivers are available for 24 hour Live-In Care or Hourly Care and can assist with personal care, daily errands, medication reminders, meal preparation, and any doctor or therapist specified exercises, lifestyle changes, or nutritional guidelines.
Side effects such as fatigue, nausea, vomiting, pain, mouth, gum, and throat problems, bowel problems, nerve and muscle effects, skin dryness, and other symptoms can be difficult to cope with. Our Cancer caregivers can ensure that your loved one receives the highest level of personal care that can be offered to ensure that they are as comfortable as possible, making daily life easier. Our caregivers can assist with healthy meal preparation, exercise, medication reminders, errands, and other essential tasks of daily living.
