Cancer Care

Understanding Cancer

Caring for people with cancer has many aspects. Post-operative care will in many cases be central, but there will probably also be symptoms relating to radiotherapy or chemotherapy to take into consideration, such as fatigue, pain and nausea. Nutritional and emotional concerns also have to be taken into account. In end-of-life situations, there will also frequently be dementia.

CareWorld Care Services’ specialised carers can help with the difficulties that cancer patients and their families experience. We can provide practical help with household tasks including cleaning and cooking, and our respite care services can allow the family time to rest and take a break from their very demanding caring role.

CareWorld is a preferred provider of home care services to the HSE.  We provide services twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.  A CareWorld supervisor can be reached around the clock. Our care and support staff are fully trained, supervised, spot-checked, garda-vetted and insured.  Grants are available from the HSE that will help cover the cost of our service. Tax relief is also available for those who qualify.
