When you’re diagnosed with cancer, it’s life-altering. At the University of Miami Health System, we offer leading-edge innovations to diagnose and treat cancer. We combine our world-class care with support services to treat the whole person — mind, body, and spirit. We believe that, treating you, as a whole person, helps to improve your well-being as you undergo treatment during this difficult period in your life.
Who is a Candidate?

- Recovering from an illness, accident, or surgery
- Unable to perform daily living activities
- Undergoing treatment
- Managing a chronic disease
- Terminally ill
What to Expect
Our home care team meets with you and your family to understand your needs and discuss what’s right for you. We work together with your doctor and other health care providers to make sure you have the care and support you need.
