Cancer Support Care

Unfortunately, everyone in the course of their lifetime will be affected by cancer in some way – be it themselves, a family member or a friend.


At present there are over 200 different types of named cancer, each with its own specific treatment and chance of being cured.  At different times during treatment and the cancer journey, people will need varying degrees of care support.

Our staff have training and experience in providing practical and emotional support to individuals undergoing treatment for cancer and also to their family and loved ones. Our approach is person-centred care and the aim is to provide relief from the symptoms and stress of serious illness.

As everyone’s experience and need are individual and unique, our care services are tailored to specifically match client requirements.  Our Care Plans are reviewed regularly to ensure they continue to meet client care needs.
