There are over 100 different types of cancer affecting the breast, skin, pancreas, liver, and other vital organs. Treatment may be short, such as surgery; or long-term, such as chemotherapy and radiation taking place over several months.
Cancer treatment often leaves patients with fatigue, lack of appetite, trouble sleeping, pain, and depression. Many times the emotional and psychological aspects of cancer go unnoticed. The immediate needs of doctor’s visits, hospitalizations, surgery, and chemo/radiation get addressed, but the family’s emotional well-being needs attention, too.
A professional caregiver from an agency can take on many of the day-to-day homemaker chores and provide family support where needed.
- Handing-off the cooking, driving, housekeeping, and laundry duties allow the patient and their family members to spend quality time together.
- Professional Caregivers can take the patient to doctor’s visits, chemotherapy treatments, or for a drive in the car to get out of the house.
Cancer patients often feel more comfortable and secure getting care because they are not separated from family, friends, and familiar surroundings.
Care at home can help patients remain relaxed, eat familiar food, and have more peace and quiet than a hospital or rehabilitation center. It is also a place to recover away from germs and infectious bacteria that can be found in public places.

Grandma’s caregiver brings so much joy to her life. She enjoys the conversation and the time they spend together. She has helped Grandma continue to be independent and allowed me to feel secure in knowing that she is well cared for. Without Katie, Grandma’s quality of life and level of joy would be much less.

I have been working with Caring Hearts of Rochester for three and a half years. I am so very grateful for the wonderful care they provide to my mom. I live out of state and used to worry about mom all day long. I no longer worry about mom, ever! I visit quite frequently and enjoy the conversation & companionship of the caregivers. Mom’s caregivers see her daily and they help her with everything from cooking and cleaning to bathing and shopping. They are kind, compassionate, loving and have truly become family to mom and me. We thank God for our truly perfect situation and we thank Caring Hearts of Rochester for providing me with peace of mind and mom exceptional care. I appreciate your kindness very much. Thank you, thank you thank you!

My mother doesn’t live nearby so I wanted someone to be with her a few days a week while I was at work. I have peace of mind knowing a responsible and kind caregiver is with her when I can’t be. Thank you very much for your wonderful care of mom.

I am very pleased that I chose Caring Hearts of Rochester for my father. They are truly committed to their care and the high integrity of their staff completely puts me at ease. I don’t worry about dad like I used to because I know that he is taken great care of each day. I am so thankful for your services and the two caregivers that see him during the week.

When my husband returned home from the hospital, you met us with the caregiver at our home to ensure everything went smoothly. This personal introduction to our caregiver brought about an easy relationship for all of us. Since then we have really become close to her and we appreciate all that she does for our family. We continue to recommend Caring Hearts to close friends and relatives requiring assistance. Thank you!
