Cancer Care for Seniors in Colorado Springs
We create person-centered cancer care plans that are customized to the needs of each senior patient.
Currently, there are over 100 types of cancer, and each patient has a completely unique experience. The disease development as well as the aggressive treatments bring about a host of symptoms which can be difficult to manage independently. These extreme changes can leave the patient in a fragile state, both physically and emotionally, while also taking a toll on family relationships. Our care team is focused on providing support with daily care needs to allow the client and their families to have and enjoy quality time.
Having a caregiver available to support as a companion on good days, and a trained provider on the rougher days can make all the difference. At Gentle Shepherd, we pride ourselves in creating person-centered care plans that are customized to the needs of each individual and matching those plans to the skills, knowledge, and personalities of our care team. Please allow us the honor of assisting you or your loved one throughout this journey.
As always, Gentle Shepherd is focused on enriching the well-being of the whole home; extending beyond the client, to deliver respite, relief, resources, and education to the family and support team.
