Colon Cancer Home Care in Singapore

The three most common gastrointestinal cancers affecting both men and women in Singapore are those of the colorectum, liver and pancreas. These accounted for 24% of the 23,632 new cases diagnosed in 2020. Additionally, figures from recent years show that colorectal cancer affects more than 2,000 individuals a year even though early screening is highly encouraged.

While colon cancer need not necessarily be a death sentence for patients, late stage patients might require round the clock care in hospitals, which drastically reduces their quality of life after diagnosis. To ensure that patients are comfortable during their remaining days, most family members opt for home care services so that patients are able to rest and recuperate in the comfort of their own homes.

Palliative Care Option

Many people have the misconception that palliative care option is for patients who are near death. However, palliative care option can be introduced at the early stages of cancer treatment. Palliative care helps manage the various side effects of chemotherapy treatment. It is a holistic care that provides patients with a more comfortable journey to recovery. Check out our comprehensive palliative care guide on how you can receive palliative care in the comfort of your home.
