What is cancer?

Cherished Home Care provides personalised cancer care in the comfort and familiarity of your own home, amongst the many memories you cherish. When you choose us as your care provider, you gain the flexibility to decide when and how you receive support. Our priority is to deliver care in a manner that aligns with your preferences and values, ensuring your comfort and well-being every step of the way.

With there being many different types of cancers and symptoms, each person’s diagnosis can differ. As part of our commitment to ensure that you receive high-quality cancer care from home, all our carers will attend our in-house induction training, which covers an array of areas that will equip them with the knowledge and expertise to provide you with the very best care.

An example of the types of care that our team of experts will provide, is support with administering medication for effective management and timely intake, assistance with maintaining safe mobility in and around your home, and discreet personal care such as dressing and bathing. Our goal is to support you in continuing your favourite activities, giving you the opportunity to maintain independence and to live life on your own terms.

Different types of cancer care

Live-in Care

Live-in care

Around-the-clock care

Live-in care is a specialised service, where one or two of our carers will stay within your home to provide you with around-the-clock support. This level of care is particularly beneficial for individuals at the advanced stage of a cancer diagnosis, where continuous support throughout the day is essential for maintaining well-being.

Hourly care

Specialist care by the hour

Our hourly care services are available to you through scheduled visits, starting from as little as one hour per day, three days a week. This flexible option empowers you to choose the frequency of care that best suits your needs. It’s an ideal choice for individuals in the earlier stages of their condition, providing support with light housekeeping, companionship, and personal care as needed.

Respite care

Short term care for you

Respite care offers a temporary care solution that provides assistance with your daily tasks and personal care, from the comfort of your own home. This is ideal if you have recently been discharged from hospital and need support until your symptoms improve, or if your family caregiver is taking a respite break to rest and recharge so that they can continue to provide you with exceptional care.

Palliative care

Bespoke end-of-life support

Palliative care focuses on improving the quality of life for those that are in the advanced stages of a health condition. This care option aims to support you with managing physical conditions, whilst receiving psychological assistance from one of our care experts. There are many benefits to choosing end-of-life support at home, as you get to choose who visits and how you spend your day whilst having your symptoms managed by a member of our team.

Costs of cancer care

The cost of receiving cancer care at home is generally higher due to its specialisation and the nature of service.

It is important to note that live-in care could be the most suitable choice, as it is proven to be more cost effective than domiciliary care. When choosing hourly care from a domiciliary care provider, additional charges may be applied depending on the support you provide and could become more expensive over time.

Our live-in care starts from £1,445 per week and our hourly care is available from £29 per hour, with a precise cost being determined after your free care assessment from one of our experienced care managers.

We are also one of the few providers to refund our set up fee once care has been received for four weeks.

If you wish to get in touch, please do not hesitate to contact a member of our team. They are available to answer any questions and guide you in the right direction.
