Chemotherapy and Cancer

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Having to travel and from a hospital or outpatient center for chemotherapy can be stressful and anxiety-inducing at a time when a cancer patient needs less stress and anxiety. Patients undergoing chemotherapy may find the experience in an unfamiliar place particularly stressful and even frightening. Finding transportation to chemotherapy appointments can be a burden, particularly when the hospital or treatment center is far away.

 

Coping with heavy traffic and finding parking can be an issue. In-HomeCare America makes chemotherapy treatment possible in the less stressful, more relaxed environment of home. We handle the chemotherapy process from start to finish, delivering the chemotherapy drugs and infusion supplies.

 

Our experienced nurses administer the necessary treatment and remain with the patient until the treatment is completed, carefully monitoring the process and making it as comfortable as possible. Our chemotherapy services include:

Education for patient and family/caregivers, including side-effects to expect

Administration of chemotherapy

Medication management

Monitoring and assessment

Dressing changes

Blood draws

Coordination and delivery of medication, supplies and equipment.

How To Get Started

If you are a patient, the first step to beginning home health care with In-HomeCare America is requesting a referral for home healthcare from your physician or hospital discharge planner. Family members of patients who need home health care services may also request a referral.

Medical professionals can refer patients to us by phone, fax or completing the referral form located here. 


Once your referral has been received, In-HomeCare will send a registered nurse or therapist to your home for an assessment and begin the admission process.
