We are spreading awareness of the support and medical care that home care offers breast cancer patients.

Breast cancer is an emotional and exhausting journey. Our nursing professionals offer cancer patients one on one care that is guided by the patient’s doctor. We acknowledge patient concern, help navigate the system, educate on care, and support families.

Breast cancer patients experience denial, shock, anger, stress, depression, grief, and fear. Our goal is to play a role in helping patients reach acceptance, fight and hope by creating a safe and healing environment at home.

Home health care helps families stay informed on the best ways to care for and support their loved one at home. We offer everything from personal care to full-time skilled nursing support. Home care not only aids with medical care but provides the knowledge that patients and families need to feel secure. Our skilled professionals advocate for patients and are often the bridge for family members to understand their loved one’s evolving needs.

Remaining active and positive are critical to healing for breast cancer patients. Home health care offers patients practical support with bathing, dressing, grooming, feeding, hygiene, and toileting along with more skilled medical care so that patients can thrive. Excellent care helps patients feel like they can perform activities they enjoyed before the diagnosis.

In an uncontrollable situation, home care is tangible support families can offer to their loved one. Home care also provided families with peace of mind. Our skilled professionals are trained to see changes in health that might be missed by the patient or family members. Skilled eyes ensure patients receive the changes in care that are needed.

Onyx Home Care offers minimum services and can increase support as the needs of the patient progress, offering families flexible and affordable skilled care. Gain peace of mind as your loved-one heals.
