Description

People with cancer in dependency and / or palliative situations have difficulties to assume usual tasks of daily life as well as to maintain an adequate personal, family and emotional development.

The Oncolliga Foundation provides practical and psychological support at home to facilitate the stay of the patient in their home and lighten the burden of family members and / or caregiver.

The service is activated in an agile and immediate way and offers support to the sick person in personal hygiene, house hygiene, nutrition, medication control and assistence. In addition, it represents effective support for the caregiver, guiding and improving patient care and preventing risk situations.

The psychological attention facilitates the adaptation to the situation and prevention of emotional alterations (anxiety crisis, depressive states, ...) of the whole family unit. It is a continuity program and is offered uninterrupted throughout the year.
