Cancer Care

During cancer treatment, stress, depression, and management of side effects are primary reasons why many cancer clients opt for home care services to recover at home. Treatments such as Chemotherapy or Radiotherapy can disrupt a client’s daily routine and affect their work, relationships, or other social interactions. Many prefer the safety and comfort of familiar surroundings as well as the support of family and loved ones. The Evercare team consists of Care Managers, Nurses, physical therapists, and the patient’s familly to support your needs.

Our Cancer Care services include:

  • Activities of Daily Living (ADL) after surgery and during treatment. Feeding, Bathing, Dressing, Grooming, Toileting & Functional Mobility (Walking)
  • Skilled Nursing Care such as wound care, ostomy care, giving intravenous (IV) treatments, giving and supervising medicines.
  • Companion Care to calm anxiety and stress during hospitalisation or outpatient treatments, run errands and provide relief for family caregivers
  • Occupational Therapy to help patients master daily tasks and relearn basic movements, like bathing, eating, dressing, driving and other household routines. In some cases, an occupational therapist can suggest home modifications to better suit your ‘ageing in place’ needs.
  • Speech Therapy to help patients overcome and/or adapt to language difficulties and address swallowing problems, common for head and neck cancer patients.

Dementia Care

Dementia affects 47 million people globally, and is a general term for memory loss and other mental abilities severe enough to interfere with daily life. We understand that dementia is not simply a medical condition, but also a social issue that poses a significant burden on caregivers, families and our ageing society.

Providing specialized non-medical care in the home is one of the most positive ways you can help. We are here to maintain some level of normalcy at home for your loved one.

Stroke Care

Post stroke recovery can be extremely challenging to cope with and recover from. Patients experience a wide range of physical, emotional, and behavioural changes that can be frustrating for them and their family members. Often times, recovery and rehabilitation at home is the best option. This provides patients with comfort and familiarity to maintain a positive attitude and regain their motor skills more quickly.

Our Stroke Care services include:

  • Activities of Daily Living (ADL) 
    Feeding, Bathing, Dressing, Grooming, Toileting & Functional Mobility (Walking). Provide medication reminders and assist with simple exercises.
  • Skilled Nursing Care
    After an acute stroke, nearly 2/3 of patients develop at least one complication. Nursing care and intervention are essential to stroke management and can help relieve the burden on family members.
  • Companion Care to provide companionship and recreational activities to add purpose to their lives. After a stroke, loneliness and inactivity may increase the likelihood of depression.
  • Physiotherapy to help patients learn how to use their arms and legs again to regain strength and movement. A physiotherapist can help restore physical functioning, treat problems for balance and coordination.
  • Occupational Therapy to help patients master daily tasks and relearn basic movements, like bathing, eating, dressing, driving and other household routines. In some cases, an occupational therapist can suggest home modifications to better suit your ‘ageing in place’ needs.
  • Speech Therapy to help patients overcome and/or adapt to language difficulties and address swallowing problems. Communication problems can affect the patient’s quality of life, especially in their social relationships, independence and self-confidence. Swallowing issues can put you at risk of infection and affect your enjoyment of food.

Diabetes Care

People with diabetes need to actively manage their disease to remain healthy and prevent complications. Diabetes is a chronic condition associated with abnormally high levels of blood sugar (glucose), involving issues with the absence or insufficient production of insulin.

  • Tracking & Monitoring
    Monitoring of physical conditions like one’s blood sugar level, blood pressure and pulse rate can help identify and prevent complications.

Cardiovascular Disease Care

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a class of diseases that involve the heart or blood vessels. Cardiovascular disease includes coronary artery diseases (CAD) such as angina and what is commonly known as a heart attack. Our caregivers’ role is to offer support and education, to equip family members and the patient with the necessary information to manage this chronic condition

    With current drugs for cardiac disease, there are also drugs to reduce LDL cholesterol in addition to a holistic treatment plan.
