Type of Services
1. Home Sample Collection

We, at HCG, opt for digital pathology protocols for accurate and quicker diagnosis; this means that everything from the sample collection to the report delivery happens on the same day.
The entire process is quick and hassle-free. A specially designed, single-use collection kit is used to collect the samples.
The lab sample collection date can be set by the patients themselves on the request form, and the phlebotomists from HCG HomeHealth will visit the patients on the said date.

3. In-Home Nursing Care
A few patients will need professional care after a medical procedure to have a better treatment response and optimum recovery. Through our in-home nursing care services, patients can access the expertise of our onconurses. Our nurses are trained and experienced in caring for home-bound patients and those who are recovering from a recent medical procedure. Opting for in-home nursing care would be an ideal option for those who are not comfortable with long hospital stays.
Our in-home nurses, who are extremely caring and attentive, can help patients with their day-to-day activities and provide continual care support to promote their recovery. In-home nursing service can be opted depending upon the patient’s need for medical assistance. Our nurses are available for short visits and shifts of 12 hours and 24 hours.
4. In-Home Rehabilitation
In-home rehabilitation helps in nurturing patients back to strength. Recovery after cancer surgery can be long and tiring. However, a comprehensive rehabilitation programme positively impacts the patient’s health and help him/her recover at a faster rate. It also ensures medical adherence, which is crucial for better treatment response and recovery.
In-home rehabilitation services can be helpful for patients who have experienced trauma or illness or have undergone a medical procedure that could have caused functional impairments (physical, psychological, social or vocational).
In-home rehabilitation supports patients by:
- Providing comprehensive care to promote the physical and mental wellbeing of the patients
- Facilitating optimum care and assistance and thereby helping reduce hospital visits
- Helping patients regain mobility, balance and achieve the best state of health possible
Following are the in-home rehabilitation programs offered by HCG HomeHealth:
5. Post-Operative Care
Recovering from surgery could be a major ordeal; nevertheless, considering physical therapy/rehabilitation could positively impact the healing process and promote faster recovery. HCG HomeHealth caregivers, who are adequately trained and skilled, provide personalised care to each patient, depending on the condition of the patient.
Physiotherapy plays an imperative role in restoring physical functions among patients who have undergone a medical procedure.
Skilled physiotherapists from the HCG HomeHealth team devise personalised therapy sessions or exercising programmes that improve physical functioning gradually. These therapy sessions are also important in helping the patients re-learn the basic physical and cognitive functioning, which will eventually help them in achieving the therapeutic goals.
Nutrition plays a significant role in helping patients recover from an illness and get back to their normal lives.
Expert onco-dieticians from the HCG HomeHealth team carefully assess the condition of the patient before suggesting a clinical nutrition treatment plan that comprises healthier food habits and lifestyle choices. These plans help strengthen the immune system, alleviate the symptoms of the disease, support faster recovery and possibly promote longevity among the patients.
8. Pain/Palliative Care
Patients diagnosed with terminal conditions cannot frequently visit hospitals for the management of pain or other symptoms, and pain/palliative care services by HCG HomeHealth could be extremely helpful for them.
The primary goal of palliative care is to preserve the quality of life by alleviating the symptoms and stress of the illness among terminal patients.
9. Yoga Therapy
Yoga therapy is extremely helpful in enhancing both the physical and mental sense of wellbeing among those under rehabilitation care. Our certified yoga therapists carefully assess the patient’s fitness levels, before planning customised yoga sessions for him/her. The key benefits of practising yoga include increased blood circulation throughout the body, enhanced tranquillity and serenity of mind and improved ability to endure stress.
Our yoga therapists will make sure to demonstrate all the yoga exercises to the patients and ensure compliance to safety and health standards, and regularly monitor the improvements and recommend a different yoga plan, if necessary. These therapists will also ensure that the patients are comfortable while performing the exercises.
