Concierge Care Private Duty Nursing is Essential to Bone Cancer Recovery: July is Sarcoma and Bone Cancer Awareness Month

July is Sarcoma and Bone Cancer Awareness Month, highlighting the estimated 3,610 new cases of bone and joint cancer to be diagnosed in 2021, according to the American Cancer Society. The most common bone cancer for adults is chondrosarcoma, while osteosarcoma and Ewing tumors are more common in children and teens.

Treatment plans for people living with bone cancer include a combination of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. At ACCESS Nursing Services, we offer private duty nurses specializing in cancer, who can provide 24/7 care to help with the recovery process.

 Here’s how a Concierge Care private duty nurse can help you during your cancer recovery:

  • Create a Personalized Care Strategy: Private duty nurses will work closely with your physician to create an integrative care strategy that’s specifically designed to support your individual recovery goals. A personalized care strategy can include nutritionists who may offer vitamin infusions, naturalists, masseuses, acupuncturists, chiropractors, aromatherapists, rehab therapists, among other specialties. Your private duty nurse will also stay in close contact with your care team to act as your advocate, which can be integral to your recovery.
  • Provide Post-Op Care: Private duty nurses will transition from hospital to home with patients to provide 24/7 care that focuses on specific medical needs and recovery practices including range of motion exercises to maintain limb function.
  • Highly Trained Private Duty Nurses Offering Individualized, Specialized Care: Specialized nurses are the key to a safe and quick recovery and are specially trained to handle the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation. They offer special care to help patients recover as comfortably as possible through proactive planning. In addition, a private nurse can also minimize the need for travel to various healthcare facilities.
