Some cancer patients require specialized health care assistance. This might happen during or after cancer treatment. Home health care services can provide certain types of temporary or ongoing medical care at home. The goal is to make it possible to remain safe and comfortable at home while having a good quality of life.
A member of your health care team might suggest adding home health care services to your treatment plan. This type of care is usually less expensive than care provided in a medical facility, but you will still have access to hospitals or other health care facilities.
