a-1 home care santa monica caregiverIn the past, the word “cancer” was a scary word because it meant a death sentence for many.  Before the advent of technology, our ancestors had to watch their loved ones pass their days in pain and agony with no hope for cure.  Nowadays, the good news is that many cancer patients can get treatment and expect to live a long life once in remission.

When a person has cancer, this signifies that a cell or group of cells has multiplied rapidly into a clump of cells.  If it is benign, then this group of cell tissue is not interfering with other organs in the body.  If the cancer is malignant, then it spreads throughout the whole body and interferes with the function of vital organs like the lungs and heart.

Cancer treatment involves chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and sometimes surgery.  Under chemotherapy and radiation, the patient experiences severe physical weakness, fatigue, loss of appetite, hair loss, anemia, and other changes.  Cancer patients need in-home care assistance with daily chores like cooking, cleaning, and hygiene.   After a long day of cancer treatment, the last thing a patient wants to do is lift a finger to do mundane chores.

That’s where A-1 Home Care comes in.  Our caregivers, hospital sitters, home health aides and companions will help you with whatever you need, especially if family members aren’t always around to help.  With your own personal assistant, you do not have to worry about being a burden to your family.
