Cancer is a condition where cells in a specific part of the body grow and reproduce uncontrollably. The cancerous cells can invade and destroy surrounding healthy tissue, including organs. Cancer sometimes begins in one part of the body and sometimes can spread to other parts, this process is known as metastasis.
Cancer does not always cause pain, but if it does, there are now many treatments available to relieve it. The most common treatment side effect is fatigue, feeling exhausted and lacking energy for day-to-day activities. Fatigue differs from normal tiredness as it often doesn’t go away with rest or sleep.
We find solutions to help people to have an excellent quality of life and enjoy opportunities to be part of their community. We understand that coping with complex health, or medical condition, can be difficult and that psychological and social support is vital in helping overcome feelings of low self-esteem, loneliness and, for some people, depression. Together, we’ll build a care programme that is all about how we can help and support you or your loved one. We’ll liaise with your GP practice, community health teams and hospital consultant to ensure you receive a continuity of care in your home across a complete and informed support team.
