5 Reasons to Choose Home Hemodialysis
Home hemodialysis (HHD) with DaVita can mean living a better life on dialysis. Here are five reasons to consider HHD when exploring your treatment options:
1. Freedom with support
HHD allows you to schedule dialysis around your life, instead of your life around dialysis. Many patients who choose HHD can continue work or school, and have more time for family and activities. But HHD doesn't mean you're on your own. Your HHD care team is available 24/7 and dedicated to ongoing support.
2. Supplies at your door
HHD equipment can be shipped right to your home or travel destination. Your equipment supplier and DaVita Guest Services collaborate so you have your supplies when and where you need them.
3. Fewer trips to the center
Once you and your care partner are trained to perform HHD, you will likely only need to visit the center once or twice a month for checkups with your home dialysis care team.
4. Shorter recovery time after treatments1
HHD's daily treatments typically mean less fatigue, nausea and complications than with in-center dialysis three times a week.
5. Starting and living with HHD
DaVita's patient training program customizes training to you and ensures you are comfortable performing dialysis at home. Once you're practicing HHD, your care team will provide ongoing education and regularly assess your HHD suitability. You can also access DaVita.com educational articles, interactive tools and sign up for our myDaVita Home Dialysis Digest newsletter for additional information and support. We're here for you—every step of the way.
