Cancer care is dedicated care designed to help those with cancer to manage their symptoms and ensure they have the best possible quality of life. At Helping Hands, we’ve got over 30 years’ experience in supporting those living with cancer to continue living independently in their own homes through our person-centred home care. In that time, we’ve helped thousands of people to maintain their normal routines, hobbies and activities whilst supporting them and their families practically, physically and emotionally.
Many people going through treatment for cancer find it beneficial to have additional support on a daily or weekly basis from an expert carer. A carer can help you to manage the symptoms of your condition and will monitor your changing needs, ensuring you’re always getting the type and level of support you require at any given time. We offer home care for cancer on both a visiting and live-in basis, with care plans starting from as little as 30 minutes per week, so whether you need assistance with medication, mobility support, a bit of housekeeping help or someone to pick up the weekly shopping, our wonderful carers will only ever be too happy to lend a hand.
A cancer diagnosis can be a major blow to both you and your loved ones, and planning care support may well feel like the last thing you want to do. At Helping Hands, we make every step of your care journey as straightforward and stress-free as possible, so that you can focus on the things that are truly important to you – your own well-being, and spending quality time with loved ones. From your very first phone call, our care experts will ensure your needs and preferences are fully understood, so that you’re truly at the heart of every decision that’s taken regarding your care. Your local care manager will arrange a convenient time for a home visit, where they’ll undertake an assessment of how we can best support you as your condition changes and develops, and we’ll make sure we take all necessary measures to give you and the wider family the holistic, flexible help you need along your cancer journey.
When you partner with us for home care in Warwickshire, you’ll benefit from one-to-one support from a carer who has been selectively recruited for their kind, compassionate personality and their dedicated approach to their role. When they start with us, every new carer is enrolled on our comprehensive four-day training and assessment programme, where they participate in a range of modules including medication, moving and handling and health and safety. We provide our carers with regular refresher courses that ensure they’re able to keep their skillset and knowledge up to date and in line with the latest care industry standards. And, for your full peace of mind, every aspect of your cancer care will be independently regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales – so you know you’ll get the same exceptional support day in, day out.
