You don’t have to face cancer alone. We’re here to help. After surgery or during chemotherapy and radiation treatments, our dedicated caregivers can provide essential monitoring, companionship, and assistance, enabling family members to rest easy knowing their loved one is in good hands.

Our Cancer Care services on the Sunshine Coast aim to make the transition home and the recovery process more comfortable and manageable. Home Care Assistance caregivers can prepare meals, assist with light housekeeping, help with personal hygiene, offer medication reminders, provide companionship, assist with exercise, and transport patients to medical appointments. By reducing stress and fatigue, our carers help promote a smoother recovery process.

Services We Provide

Transportation and Errands: Driving can be challenging while undergoing or recovering from cancer treatments. Our caregivers provide transportation to and from treatments, rehabilitation appointments, shopping trips, support group sessions, and more. They can also run errands like grocery shopping or picking up medications, allowing the patient to rest at home.

Nutrition and Meal Preparation: Proper nutrition is crucial during cancer treatment. Our caregivers can prepare meals based on our Balanced Care Method, emphasising healthy, balanced nutrition in line with doctor’s recommendations. Since large meals may be difficult during treatment, caregivers encourage small, nutritious snacks throughout the day and suggest nutritional supplements as needed.

Medication Reminders and Management: Keeping track of various medications during and after cancer treatment can be overwhelming. Our caregivers offer reminders for medication schedules, ensuring that each medication is taken correctly and on time, alleviating any worries about managing multiple prescriptions.

Light Housekeeping and Personal Hygiene Assistance: Cancer treatments and recovery can make everyday tasks difficult. Our caregivers prioritise health and safety by assisting with housekeeping and personal hygiene, including laundry, bathing, and other daily activities. They provide support to help maintain independence while ensuring these essential tasks are completed.

Rehabilitation Support: Physical activity and therapy are vital for recovery after cancer treatment. Our caregivers offer support during these activities, providing encouragement and ensuring that exercise routines are followed without overexertion. They are there every step of the way to aid in the emotional and physical challenges of rehabilitation.

Choosing the Right Home Care Provider

Selecting the right home care services for yourself or a loved one can be daunting. It’s important to ask the right questions and ensure that the support provided meets your current and future needs. To assist in this process, we have developed a Home Care Company Checklist to guide you in making an informed decision.

We aim to build close, trusted relationships with families, designing personalised care plans that adapt to each individual’s changing needs over time. Personalised care can be more affordable than you think! Government programs such as Home Care Packages, NDIS, and the Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) can help cover personal care and assistance costs. Note that there may be a gap requiring a small contribution, as government funding may not cover the entire program cost.
