A home is more than just the house in which you reside in. More than just a shelter for yourself and your belongings, a home is the place in which you can come back from the stress of daily life and societal restrictions and simply relax. It’s the place where you can let loose and forget about entertaining any notions of small talk or other social norms. In simpler terms, home is a place to be yourself. So naturally, this may pose a problem for those who, due to injury or illness, may be in need of assistance around the home. While the thought of having just any person, who isn’t a friend or family, enter your personal space can have potential for some discomfort, it may be necessary in order to improve your situation. This, however, does not have to equate to a stressful experience.

It’s not uncommon for Elderly individuals to be very pessimistic with a negative outlook on life. Many Elders are going through heavy emotional battles, trying to cope with their deteriorating health, the loss of loved friends or a life partner, loneliness, and there may be many more things bothering them. Still, being able to communicate effectively with a loved one is very important. One of the common ways an Elder person avoids talking about a topic is by talking about something else. When this happens, tell your loved one, “I’d like to talk about that also but separately. First, let’s figure out what we want to do about this issue.”
Did you know that there are many different forms of cancer, which range from Bladder Cancer to Lung Cancer to Melanoma? These diseases are all unique in their own symptoms, but what they share in common, especially for malignant cancer, is the pain that can come from living with cancer. Not only is there risk of harm from the disease itself, but also from the methods used to treat cancer. Chemotherapy is often used to combat cancer, but the radiation from chemo therapy often leaves their patients in pain and without hair. It’s a very painful procedure, both physically and emotionally.
But while it requires a lot of strength and bravery to fight off cancer, there is no need to be suffering alone.

With our Cancer caregivers, your life or that of your loved one can have its burdened lifted, as whatever task is necessary in the house or at a facility can be handled by our in home and live in home helpers. Along with cancer care, they are also trained to administer Companion Care, Senior Care for the elderly, and Special Needs Care for the developmentally disabled.

If detected early enough some people can get rid of cancer fully, however others are bound to be terminally ill. Cancer can cause a lot of physical pain and emotional distress. It’s important for the friends and family of a loved one with cancer to provide loving support. Unfortunately for Selena Esparza, her husband was always at work, so she went through the majority of her cancer experience alone. The good news is that she is now Cancer free.
In this video, Selena Esparza talks about her whole experience with cancer and how alone she felt in the hospital during the treatment. “For anyone who is going through cancer, be strong – and whatever it is that makes you happy, that comforts you, that is soothing for you, get it,” she says. Selena’s comfort were the dolls she had with her when she was in the hospital.
