Though every case is different, those who have cancer frequently experience a variety of symptoms that may inhibit their ability to live on their own for at least a short time. For instance, those undergoing chemotherapy may experience any or all of the following symptoms that make it difficult to live without assistance:
- Fatigue & Weakness
- Memory Changes
- Shaking or Trembling
- Visual Problems
- Ambulatory Problems
- Difficulty Hearing
Similarly, cancer surgeries and other treatments can cause different side effects depending on what type of surgery the patient underwent and what part of the body was affected. Pain, fatigue, & weakness are also common side effects for post-surgery clients. In addition, complications from the site of the surgery may arise and require monitoring by an expert third party like the home health professionals at Abcor.
Of course, it’s not just treatments that require home care – Abcor also offers hospice care in the unfortunate event of a terminal illness from cancer. Our nurses and caregivers are specially trained to make the client’s remaining journey as comfortable as possible.
