“Lynwen’s” Cancer Care Nursing Care & Advisory Service
We have developed our own “Lynwen’s” Cancer Care Nursing & Advisory Service.
As part of our aim to provide monies and help where most needed, we have had a vision to provide a nursing team, similar to Macmillan nurses, so that anybody who is suffering from cancer, or is close to the patient, can come to us for help and support.
We now have our own Lead Care Nurse who works with a team to help with communications between patients and local hospitals and with other aspects of care required before, during and after a diagnosis of cancer. We are proud to say that we have a growing list of patients who have now benefited greatly from this service since it started.
It has inspired our long term vision to provide a service which guides as many patients and families as possible through the health system from diagnosis, testing, treatment and follow up care.
What Can We Do For You?
If you or anyone you know has been given a diagnosis of cancer and is struggling with any aspect, then please feel free to contact us.
Living with and beyond cancer is not just about treatment and clinical issues. Cancer affects us emotionally as well as physically and can also affect families with financial implications. We treat each case as unique.
Sometimes you may have side effects of treatment, and surgery and medication can cause hair loss and other bodily/cosmetic changes.
Our team can consider your needs and help and advise on many aspects. Where we can’t provide the help ourselves, we will guide you to all recommended service providers.
Most of us are qualified in counselling and bereavement services. We work as a team and all conversations are treated in complete confidence. Sometimes it’s just a reassuring voice and help with everyday problems that may occur when someone becomes ill in Spain that makes all the difference.
You may just want to join us for a chat and a cuppa, or you may even want to join our walking group. Nothing too energetic, but a different opportunity to help your wellbeing and gives you the chance to have input into what we do and put your ideas forward, no matter how big or small. We will listen to your needs.
Our nurses and carers have the experience, qualifications and skills. Contact us and find out what we can do for you, living with and beyond cancer.
