Who We Care For - Chronic Diseases

Managing chronic diseases can be difficult, and when your loved one has been diagnosed with multiple chronic diseases, the process becomes even more complicated. Monitoring blood pressure and glucose readings, administering multiple medications, managing a diabetic diet, or providing tube feedings or ostomy care can be overwhelming for caregivers, let alone the senior living alone.

Patients suffering with chronic care conditions account for 81% of hospital admissions and 76% of physician visits.

Stanford University and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation conducted a study that found that a home-based nurse-directed system of care significantly improved patients’ diabetes and lowered cholesterol levels.
