It seems like in this day and age, cancer has touched everyone’s life in some way. This disease is when abnormal cells divide out of control and have the ability to invade into other tissues through the blood and lymph systems. It can either be inherited from our parents, or can be developed throughout a person’s lifetime. According to the National Cancer Institute, there are many cancers that form solid tumors but other cancers of the blood do not form tumors. We understand that it is not possible for you to remain with your loved one 24 hours a day. However, with the assistance of Senior Helpers you and your loved one will have the peace of mind that you have a skilled caregiver advocating for your loved ones day to day needs.
There are many ways in which you can help you or your loved one through the various steps of a cancer diagnosis. At Senior Helpers we establish a detailed care plan for your loved one. With the help of the care plan our skilled caregivers can provide one-on-one assistance with:
Transportation to and from appointments
Managing daily activities to conserve energy
Preparation of meals with proper nutrition to increase energy levels
Relaxation and breathing techniques to lower stress levels
Verbal communication and consistent emotional support
It is important to remember that while caring for someone you love, it can take a serious emotional toll on your overall well-being. It is okay take a step back and ask for help. If you are overwhelmed trying to balance your day to day responsibilities on top of caregiving, give us a call at Senior Helpers today.
