Hospice Care For End Stage Renal Disease PatientsWhat can hospice care do for a end stage renal disease (ESRD) patient? If you are reading this, it is likely you or someone you love has been waging a difficult physical and emotional battle against kidney disease. Well, what ESRD patients get from hospice care?

1. When hospice care is required?

Even when a patient has excellent medical care and a family’s loving support, sometimes the burden of dialysis outweighs the benefits. When patients decide to quit dialysis, they still have immediate medical needs and personal wishes, and families also have concerns. Hospice care provides the physical, emotional and spiritual needs that can be significant at the end of kidney failure.

2. What can kidney failure patients get from hospice care?

Kidney failure patients can get comprehensive services from hospice care:

Pain and symptom control

Hospice care helps manage pain, stiffness, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, itching, difficulty breathing, difficulty sleeping, anxiety, depression and other symptoms common to kidney failure. This ensures patients are able to enjoy life and remain in control of day to day decisions for as long as possible.

Emotional and spiritual assistance

Withdrawing from dialysis is most often an emotionally difficult process, so hospice care at this time is very inclusive. Hospice workers can help with advance directives and with the emotional and psychological issues that come with making this decision and with the end of life process.

Coordinated care at every level

A plan of care is developed with the advice and consent of the patient’s kidney expert or other physician. A team manager ensures that information flows between all physicians, nurses, social workers and clergy. Besides, hospice coordinates and supplies all medications, medical supplies and medical equipment related to the diagnosis to ensure patients have everything they need.

Hospice care is your own choice to end your final life. You can maintain your life by hospice care or continuing dialysis or seeking effective treatments. If you still have some urine output, it indicates that you still have some healthy kidney nephrons. In this condition, you can protect residual kidney function under the action of Micro-Chinese medicine Osmotherapy. This therapy can repair damaged kidney tissues and gradually improve kidney function. Dialysis can be reduced and even be withdrew.
