Cancer Care for Seniors Living at Home.

 

Whether a new diagnosis or a renewed battle, LivHOME’s cancer care program is here to help you on your pathway to recovery. Our Life Care Managers bring years of experience to provide your family with expert guidance, support, and resources to help you reach optimal treatment outcomes.

Cancer care in the comfort of home.

We know that the physical toll of some treatments can make it especially difficult to stay optimistic. But often, the comfort of home is what’s needed most. Since the quality of cancer care received can have a significant impact on emotional well-being, we’re here to take care of the home care details so you can concentrate on recovery.

A family may struggle with balancing a desire to be with their loved one and their other life responsibilities. Your Life Care Manager will provide the entire family with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that all is being done to ensure you are as comfortable as possible during any stage of the cancer care treatment or recovery process.

Access to the right services.

A home care assessment helps you understand your specific needs and preferences along the cancer journey. The geriatric care manager then identifies the best options and devises a Plan of Care to optimize quality of life as much as possible.

Independence and enrichment.

Although your ability to function independently may be compromised, we believe in providing the necessary elder care planning agency support to maximize independence and empowerment for all of our clients. Our expert geriatric care managers balance attending to not only physical care needs, but emotional, social, and cognitive needs as well, achieving the greatest possible enrichment and fulfillment.

Support for the entire family.

Optimizing life for a person with cancer presents challenges to the entire family. Having a professional partner can provide the family with an objective guide, someone who responds to needs as they arise, as well as anticipates and helps plan for the future. The geriatric care manager is your advocate.

Comprehensive caregiving services.

Should hands-on care be needed, LivHOME Caregivers, who are company employees, will be hand-selected and matched by the Life Care Manager to enrich the living situation, whether the client lives independently, with family, or in a facility. Your Caregiver will follow the Plan of Care created specifically for you. Some of the home care services we can provide include:

  • Bathing, dressing, and grooming
  • Meal planning and preparation
  • Light housekeeping and laundry
  • Grocery shopping and running errands
  • Companionship and joyful activities
  • Transportation for appointments
  • Exercise and mobility assistance
  • Medication reminders
