Cancer Care

Accepting some help around the home can allow you to focus on providing emotional support for your loved one in their time of need

How can we help?

Many cancer patients feel more comfortable receiving care at home so that they’re not separated from family, friends and familiar surroundings. But cancer is a condition that can change relationships and require families to address new issues.

Care at Home is often a great way to alleviate some of the pressures of family caregiving when it comes to cancer, allowing you to focus on emotional support instead of the details of daily activities.

Right at Home Derby CareGivers can supplement any hospice care by helping with tasks such as:

  • Personal care
  • Medication reminders / set-up / administration
  • Shopping
  • Meal preparation
  • Laundry
  • Light housekeeping
