The costs of home care in the Netherlands are estimated for women with advanced breast and cervical cancer.
We observe a growing role of intensive home care for the terminally ill patients.
The average costs of home care are dfl 8500 per patient for breast cancer patients and dfl 7200 for cervical cancer patients.
More than half of these costs are incurred in the last month before death.
The level of home care in the preceding months is quite modest (dfl 120 per month for both diseases), not taking into account informal care.
The costs of home care for patients with advanced cancer are only slightly related to the site of the primary tumor from which the metastases originate.
