MOC Home Care
Most of people have never heard phrase called ‘Home Care’ until the crisis called Cancer strikes. It is a rescue mechanism by means of one of the most specialized services that the cancer patients and their families can get when cancer patients are in terminal stage of their disease.
In cancer, many patients are diagnosed into late stages of their disease. Many of the patients treated previously for cancer recur i,e, cancer comes back or progresses from a particular stage to the next. In such circumstances, patients are treated with palliative intent i.e. they are treated with an intent of addressing their pain and discomfort at the same time other physical challenges as curing patient or keeping their disease under control is not possible anymore.
Home care is an increasing need in the current age because of increasing working individuals in families and lack of time to pay attention to such patients in the families despite the desire to do so. Home care involves helping cancer patients and families with best supportive care at home so that their quality of life can be made better. It primarily includes nursing assistance at home as well as treatment from cancer palliative care specialist at doorstep.
