Cancer care for you or your loved one at home
Coming to terms with a severe condition, like cancer, can be one of the toughest things someone can face in life. If you or a loved one is affected by cancer and are in need of day-to-day assistance, we can make things easier by supporting you at home – whether in the form of nursing support, home help, personal care or companionship and encouragement through some of the emotional issues you may be facing.
Here at Helping Hands, we believe that everyone should be able to receive the care they require without leaving their own home. Because the home is an environment in which they can be around the people they care about the most, and their own possessions which hold many sentimental memories.

My husband is undergoing treatment for cancer and we have found both our carers to be lovely, kind and caring towards my husband and I. We are very happy to continue with the services.

Support at home for cancer patients from expert carers
Our carers are trained to provide support for cancer patients, who may be affected by many forms of the illness. And in our 32 years as a provider of quality home care, we’ve helped people with all forms of the disease. We not only work alongside our customers’ doctors and Macmillan nurses to provide them with the best possible support, but endeavour to help family and friends too.
Caring for people with cancer can be difficult for family members, and we will always do our best to support yours. By providing cancer care at home for your loved one, you and your family can concentrate on spending quality time together without having to be the primary carer. With our help, you can focus more of your time and energies on being a family.
Our carers can provide support with:
- Administering medication
- Low-grade medical support, such as supporting with bowel, stoma and catheter care
- Personal care, if needed, such as bathing, changing clothes or help going to the toilet
- Support post chemotherapy, radiotherapy or hormonal therapy
- Moving safely around the home
- Running errands, such as collecting prescriptions and shopping for food. Managing your hospital visits.
- Help around the home, whether it’s cooking meals, vacuuming or doing the laundry , maintaining a healthy diet and environment is important to your well-being.
- Companionship – many of our carers become more like friends to the people they support
Our carers receive ongoing training to ensure they’re fully equipped with all the knowledge necessary to provide a complete cancer care service. We also have carers who are experienced in palliative care and end-of-life care, helping people to live in comfort and with dignity during their final months.
