Benefits of Home Care for Mesothelioma Patients
Home care for mesothelioma can help you:
Manage your cancer treatments: For example, if you must take daily chemotherapy drugs, a nurse can make sure you do so.
Avoid treatment complications: It may take several weeks or months to recover from a major mesothelioma treatment like surgery once you’re discharged from the hospital. In-home nurses and therapists can help you gain your strength back and avoid possible complications in the process.
Feel less alone: Life after a mesothelioma diagnosis can be isolating and scary, especially if loved ones or family live far away. Home caregivers can provide companionship and ease this sense of loneliness.
Hiring in-home care services can also take some of the caregiving responsibilities from your loved ones and allow them to recharge. Click here
