Home patients are feeling better, living longer.
Did you know that more patients dialyze at home with DaVita than any other provider? DaVita is the largest independent provider of dialysis in the United States. Ever since home dialysis was developed in the 1960s, people have been practicing home dialysis safely and effectively.
Imagine receiving dialysis at home in your favorite chair. Or knowing you don’t have to travel to and from the center in bad weather. Imagine being able to arrange your treatments around your life, not your life around your treatments.
And while comfort, convenience and flexibility are big benefits of home dialysis, there are many more. Dramatic health benefits can happen when home dialyzers take advantage of their home setting to do dialysis more frequently (home hemodialysis) or for longer periods (overnight peritoneal dialysis).
Almost anyone can learn to do home dialysis. DaVita caregivers will train you and your care partner at your own pace. You’ll continue to keep close ties with your doctors and DaVita care team. They will oversee your ongoing care, just as your team oversees your care in the center now. Want to learn more? Ask your doctor which method(s) of home dialysis might be right for you or call 1-800-244-0582 for more information.
