An Introduction to Cancer

Every day, healthy cells in our body divide to replace old or damaged cells. Cancer cells, however, grow and survive when they should not, depleting oxygen and nutrients that could be used to nourish healthy cells instead.

This leads to an impaired immune system and other health problems, which explains why many cancer patients often experience symptoms such as unexplained weight loss, fatigue and pain.

1 in 2 Australian Will Develop Cancer by Age 85

Cancer is a leading cause of death in Australia. It is estimated that there were almost 150,000 new cancer diagnoses and 50,000 deaths in 2020. The top cancers in Australia include prostate, breast, colorectal, melanoma, and lung cancer.

Thankfully, advancements in treatment and screening have led to earlier detection and timely treatment for many, improving cancer survival rates from less than 50% in the 1980s to almost 70% today.

Stage I

Early-stage cancer is located in one area and has not spread to nearby tissues. Individuals with this form of cancer have a high chance of full recovery, usually by removing the tumour with surgery.

Care Support 

  • Medical escort
  • Medication reminders
  • Post-surgery care
  • Nursing care
  • Rehabilitation therapy

Stage II or III

At this stage, cancer may have spread to nearby tissues and/or lymph nodes, but not to other parts of the body. Recovery may be possible with more extensive treatment.

Care Support

  • Medical escort
  • Medication reminders
  • Staying active
  • Rehabilitation therapy
  • Night care
  • Palliative care

Stage IV

In advanced or metastatic cancer, cancer cells have spread to other parts of the body. In most cases, stage IV cancer is no longer curable. Hospice treatment may be recommended instead.

Care Support

  • Hospice care
  • Personal care
  • Medication reminders
  • Nursing care
  • Rehabilitation therapy
  • Night care

Top questions about Cancer Care

Service FAQ

What does palliative care mean for cancer patients?

Contrary to popular belief, palliative care does not mean death. While palliative care does encompass end-of-life or hospice care, people going through curative treatment can also receive palliative care to cope with various cancer symptoms and any side effects of treatment to minimise discomfort. It takes a holistic, person-centred approach, addressing not only the physical symptoms but also any related psychological, social and spiritual issues one might have.

Does Homage provide live-in cancer care service?

We currently provide 24-hour cancer care services but not live-in caregiving.

Two Homage Care Professionals will be scheduled for the visits, and care will be split into 12-hour shifts to support you and your loved one round-the-clock each day.

How fast will I receive cancer care support?

Once you have confirmed you will like to proceed with engaging Homage’s cancer care service, we can match you or your loved one with a suitable Care Professional as fast as within 24-48 hours.

What are Homage cancer care packages?

We have interim to longer-term home care packages with varying care durations so that you and your loved one can find a cancer care package that best fit your needs and preferences. Home care packages can also help save up to 25% for multiple care sessions. Reach out to our Care Advisors at 1300 705 029 for more details.

Who are the Homage Care Professionals?

Homage Care Professionals are Australians (and permanent residents) who are passionate and dedicated to delivering quality home care to families and care recipients. 100% local, they are trained support workers and licensed nurses from all walks of life.

What is the shortest duration for a cancer care visit?

The duration of a Homage cancer care visit starts from just one hour, depending on the family’s preferences and your loved one’s needs.

Can I use my Home Care Package (HCP) funding for Homage services?

You may use your Home Care Packages (HCP) to engage Homage services if you self-manage your HCP. You may connect Homage with your registered self-managed provider to facilitate service bookings using your HCP funds.

We support both private clients and those on the government waitlist but require care urgently. Please speak to our Care Advisor today at 1300 705 029 if you require care support.

Can I use my NDIS funding for Homage services?

You may use your NDIS funds to engage Homage services if:

 

  1. You self-manage your NDIS funds – you may directly book services with us. Homage will issue you the service invoice for you to submit claims.
  2. A plan manager manages your NDIS funds – you may connect Homage with your plan manager to facilitate service bookings using your NDIS funds.

We support both private clients and those on the government waitlist but require care urgently. Please speak to our Care Advisor today at 1300 705 029 if you require care support.

I have 2 elderly at home. Can a Care Professional care for both?

To ensure you or your loved one receives undivided attention and care, each care recipient would be matched to a dedicated Care Professional who fits their needs and preference. If there are 2 elderly in the same home who needs care, a Care Professional would be present to care for each recipient respectively.
