Expert Cancer Care from Nurses and Home Health Aides

Alvita Care specializes in cancer care with best-in-class care available while in the hospital or at home. Our one-of-a-kind team of healthcare experts is specially trained to care for clients with all types of cancer, understanding each one has complexities and nuances. In-home cancer care is administered by registered nurses (RNs) or certified home health aides (HHAs) licensed in New York or New Jersey. In a hospital, skilled nursing facility, or rehab facility, our bedside care provides one-on-one assistance.

Alvita Care is the exclusive provider of Bedside Care
at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City.

Our private duty nursing and home care services specific to cancer care can improve a client’s physical and emotional wellbeing, ease daily life during recovery or treatment, and give peace of mind to family and friends. Private-duty nurses help with medication administration and management, wound care and other forms of medical services that one might receive in a hospital. At home, our team of certified home health aides provide assistance with all activities of daily living (ADLs). They also offer companionship and emotional support that can mean so much during treatment and recovery.

One-on-One Cancer Care Provides Comfort and Support

The stress and discomfort of surgery, chemotherapy or radiation for cancer patients can be strenuous.  The presence of an expert Alvita Care private-duty nurse or certified home health aide can help alleviate the physical and emotional stress associated with the various stages of cancer. Having one-on-one skilled medical care or general assistance can be comforting during some of life’s most stressful moments. During periods of anxiety or worry, the presence of a licensed healthcare professional can provide reassurance, improve a client’s recovery, and support better quality of life.

Alvita Care Provides a Compassionate, Client-Centered Approach to Cancer Care

We are always available to provide information and options for clients evaluating cancer care for at-home services or those available in a hospital. Our team understands each client’s needs are unique, and both priorities and one’s recovery can change day to day. Working with an experienced, licensed home care agency like Alvita Care goes beyond what is available from an independently hired caregiver. Experience has shown that consistent oversight from our cancer care managers leads to improved patient outcomes and helps reduce rehospitalizations.
