Introduction Cancer. That is often the only word many people can remember when they or their loved one are first told of a cancer diagnosis. Most of the initial conversation is heard in silent disbelief. It is usually later that day or even weeks into treatment when questions begin to arise: • How do I support my family if I can’t work? • How do I pay for medications? • What do I do if I need help caring for my loved one? There are answers to these questions and resources in the community to help. This directory provides answers and guidance for those questions.

A CANCER RESOURCE GUIDE FOR PATIENTS AND THEIR FAMILIES | 3

Hereditary Cancer Program Hereditary Cancer Program....................(606) 408-7528 When cancer occurs in a family member it often leads others to question if they are at risk. Although many cancers develop from random causes, some cancers are hereditary. Therefore a family history can increase a person’s risk for developing the disease. Through ongoing research more than two dozen hereditary cancer genes have been discovered. These discoveries have made possible methods of early identification and intervention. The Hereditary Cancer Program at King’s Daughters Medical Center offers families the opportunity to explore their risk for cancer, understand the options available for medical treatment and possess information to assist in making future healthcare decisions. Participants in the program receive: • diagram of your family tree and how family cancers may relate to one another • information about cancer genetics and hereditary risk • personal plan for cancer screenings and ways to reduce risk of the disease • potential referral to a genetics counselor for additional information

Dietary Needs Nutrition is a significant part of cancer treatment. Consuming proper foods and adequate calories can help patients feel better and stay stronger. A registered dietitian can provide an individualized nutrition plan based on your specific needs and help answer questions regarding supplements, dietary restrictions and nutrition support. Please feel free to contact our nutrition services department at (606) 408-5021 if you have experienced any of the following symptoms: • prolonged nausea, vomiting or diarrhea

Palliative Care Program Inpatient Palliative Care Team................ (606) 920-1600 (606) 408-3863 Palliative care is a specialized, holistic approach to care available to patients with a life-limiting illness such as cancer. The Palliative Care team at KDMC consists of a physician, nurse, social worker and pastoral care team member who work in conjunction with a patient’s attending physician. Other disciplines such as dietary, pharmacy and physical therapy are involved as needed. Care is patient-centered focusing on symptom control, education and goal setting. The aim of palliative care is to address the physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs of a patient and therefore services are tailored to meet the needs of the patient. The Palliative Care nurse is available Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., for all patients.

Hospice Care Hospice is an organization devoted to the care of terminally ill patients and their families. Hospice provides care to assist a patient to live their end days to the fullest. Hospice does this by having a dedicated team of caregivers to meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the patient and their family. The Hospice team consists of doctors, nurses, home health aides, social workers, clergy and volunteers. Hospice services are available at home, in the nursing home setting and also at the Hospice Care Center (only available in certain areas). To be eligible for Hospice a patient must be aware of their condition, no longer seeking curative measures but rather comfort care and have a physician’s referral. Hospice services are covered by Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance. However, Hospice serves all patients regardless of their ability to pay. Hospice offers the following services to their home patients: • nursing care by registered nurses who make regular visits • 24-hour on-call services • home health aide for personal care

• weight loss of 10 pounds or greater during the past month

• social worker for counseling, assistance with finances and community resources

• a sore mouth that interferes with consumption

• medical equipment and supplies

• planned nutrition support – feeding tube or TPN

• medications directly related to the patient’s illness

Advanced Directives At any point in our lives a crisis can arise, placing us in a situation where we need assistance with financial, medical and personal affairs. Often these types of situations occur when someone has become ill. In these circumstances, it is beneficial to have legal documents in place appointing someone to make decisions on your behalf. The individual needs to be someone you trust and who has a good understanding of how you want your medical and personal affairs directed. Types of documents which can be completed to appoint someone to aid you or make your wishes known are:

• 13 guest rooms, each with two single beds and a private bath, with bed and bath linens provided; 2 handicapped-accessible guest rooms

• power of attorney

• common kitchen and dining area, living room, laundry facility

• healthcare surrogate

• 24-hour on-site management

• living will

• estate will


A CANCER RESOURCE GUIDE FOR PATIENTS AND THEIR FAMILIES | 5

The living will and healthcare surrogate documents deal only with medical decisions and appointment of a decision maker for medical purposes. The estate will covers distribution of assets after death. A power of attorney (POA) appoints someone to handle certain affairs for you. A POA can be broad in nature allowing the appointed person to handle financial, personal, legal and medical affairs or it can be specific allowing control of only one particular decision such as medical affairs.

Supplemental Security Income is available to adults or children who are disabled or blind. These individuals must have limited income and resources along with meeting other eligibility requirements.
