THE INTEREST OF SUPPORT CARE IN THE MANAGEMENT OF CHRONIC DISEASES, PARTICULARLY ONCOLOGY.
Cancer has become a chronic pathology that requires comprehensive long-term care.
Side effects due to chemotherapy, targeted therapies, hormone therapy, radiotherapy, have repercussions on the lives of patients: the need for postponement of treatment, reduction of doses …
Alteration of the quality of life of the patient
These side effects, if left untreated, generate a “loss of luck” (reduced life expectancy) for the patient.
Surgery, on the other hand, sometimes leaves scars both physical and psychological.
LOUIS CAZE Center has a real vocation in the accompaniment of patients and their families to answer the different problems encountered throughout the illness and in post-treatment. Multiple stakeholders are mobilized: massage therapists, psychologists, dieticians, physical coaches, beauticians and proximologists …
We know the importance of preserving the image of oneself, of preserving a nutritional capital, of taking into account the psychological well-being, the possible disorders of sexuality. It is also essential to treat pain and maintain physical independence. Caregivers (family, relatives) must also be supported and heard in their specific difficulties.
Doctors are particularly aware of all of these elements.
Center LOUIS CAZE is there to offer a comprehensive and adapted support and support the patient, in consultation with him and taking into account his specific needs, alongside medical treatment.
The members of the Scientific Committee consider the care offered by Center LOUIS CAZE to be particularly useful to oncology patients and their relatives.
