In-Home Care For Cancer Patients
Kinkaid Private Nursing Care provides premium cancer care from the comfort of our patients’ homes. As no two cancer cases are the same, our highly trained and experienced nurses customize our care plans to fit the specific needs of each patient. And while providing this care, we emphasize the following three values:
Safety: Your safety is our top priority. We take extra precautions to ensure you are safe throughout your care process.
Comfort: One of the biggest advantages of our care is that it is done entirely from the comfort of your home. We take additional measures as well to ensure you are as comfortable as possible throughout your care.
Quality Care: Our nurses’ advanced training and decades of experience ensure you receive the best care available.
What is Cancer Care?
Cancer care, also known as oncology care, refers to the care one receives in addition to treatment in the hospital. While hospital treatments like chemotherapy and radiation treatment aim to rid the body of the disease, cancer care focuses on the additional elements of care that aim to keep the patient comfortable throughout treatment.
In short, the goal of cancer care is to provide a higher level of comfort as patients go through their medical treatment. Again, it is important to keep in mind that cancer care does not cure cancer. Read on to see how cancer care works and how Kinkaid provides exceptional in-home cancer care.
KINKAID’S IN-HOME CANCER CARE:
Kinkaid provides premium in-home cancer care for patients throughout the Los Angeles area. As mentioned above, we customize our care plan for each patient to ensure we meet your every need. In general, though, our in-home care focuses on the following for each patient:
Our nurses consistently perform patient assessments to make sure you are as comfortable as possible while you go through radiation treatment, chemotherapy, and other cancer treatments. In addition to detecting potential complications, these assessments help our nurses effectively manage the following symptoms that can be associated with various types of cancer (please note that symptoms may vary depending on your specific case):
- Constant fatigue
- Discomfort after eating
- High fever
- Joint pain
- Persistent cough and trouble breathing
- Muscle discomfort
- Other various physical symptoms depending on the type of cancer
PROACTIVE CARE BY VIGILANT OVERSIGHT:
Our team always operates with a proactive mentality by providing vigilant in-home oversight to anticipate any potential medical emergencies. This ensures you are always as safe and comfortable as possible.
IN-HOME LAB WORK:
Our nurses perform lab work from the comfort of your home to help monitor any abnormalities and update your physician accordingly.
PROPER NUTRITION PLAN:
Eating healthy is important for managing cancer symptoms. Our nurses are trained to help you choose a nutrition plan that is appropriate for your specific type of cancer and can help more effectively manage your symptoms.
HEALTHY EXERCISE REGIMEN:
In addition to eating healthy, exercising is crucial for maintaining overall health and giving your body the agility and metabolic functions it needs to fight off various symptoms associated with cancer. Our nurses help you develop an assisted exercise regimen that works with your specific needs.
COORDINATING DOCTOR’S APPOINTMENTS:
In addition to providing top-notch care, our nurses can schedule and coordinate all logistics for your doctor’s appointments.
Good communication is key for anything, especially for handling something as complicated as cancer care. We prioritize communication with our patients and their families to ensure everyone is on the same page and that our patients receive everything they need in a timely and effective manner.
COORDINATION OF SUPPORTING SERVICES:
To help increase your level of comfort during treatment, our nurses can coordinate various in-home concierge services.
