Choosing LifeCare Home Health & In-Home Services

Already known for unparalleled home health services, implementing an equally outstanding specialized Oncology service was a natural evolution. We understand that patients diagnosed with cancer need a home care team specially trained to address specific patient needs. Our multidisciplinary care team is trained to address these needs, and is certified to provide chemotherapy at home for patients in Northbrook, Highland Park, Lake Forest, Chicago, and surrounding areas. We work closely with community support and resources, medical supply, pharmaceutical and infusion companies to ensure that all of your needs are met in a timely manner.
