Lung Cancer Home Care in Singapore

Lung cancer is the third most common cancer among women in Singapore. According to the Singapore Cancer Society, patients have a much higher chance of survival if it is detected in the early stages, although it also depends on other factors such as the patient’s age, diet, genetic disposition, and other lifestyle habits.

With lung cancer being such a common disease in Singapore, it is imperative for Singaporeans to find out more about the effects of the illness and the quality of home care needed to cope with such an illness, in order to care for their loved ones.

Supporting a Loved One Undergoing Treatment for Lung Cancer

Caregivers should familiarise themselves with the likely side effects of the treatment for lung cancer, which can be discussed with the doctor. From there, steps can be taken to help your loved one manage the side effects, whether through medication, dietary changes or even preparing your home or engaging nursing services in Singapore to care for the patient.

As a caregiver, your responsibilities may include:

  • Giving medications
  • Coordinating medical appointments
  • Managing and keeping track of side effects during the treatment(s)
  • Handling the medical bills and insurance claims
  • Planning of meals
  • Helping out with household chores at home
  • Providing emotional support and encouragement

Sometimes, providing adequate home care during the treatment process of lung cancer can be a challenge for caregivers in Singapore. This is especially so if you are trying to balance the caregiving of a family member diagnosed with Lung Cancer while maintaining your daily activities such as going to work and other family or social responsibilities.
