The BEST CARE Possible, EVERY DAY
Fresenius Kidney Care is dedicated to helping people with kidney disease live well at every stage. As the worldwide leader in kidney care, we are committed to providing personalized education and resources to support people throughout their kidney disease journey. We provide the highest-quality care for patients to help them achieve their specific health goals and feel their best.
Our Holistic Approach
CARING FOR THE WHOLE PATIENT
Fresenius Kidney Care addresses the unique and varied needs of every patient — bringing education, nutritional resources, mental health support, financial guidance, and more, as we provide care to those living with kidney disease. We believe emotional well-being is just as important as physical well-being, and we customize care for each patient so they can stay true to their passions and goals in life and thrive.
KIDNEY DISEASE EDUCATION
Helping people live their best life with kidney disease means providing them with resources and support at every stage of their journey. Our free kidney disease education class is offered to patients, care partners, and family members, and can be taken with an educator or self-paced online. The class covers:
- Symptoms and stages of chronic kidney disease
- Eating well with kidney disease
- Coping and getting support
- Treatment options — including home dialysis
- Additional resources
People exploring their dialysis treatment options should be informed about every treatment option available to them. Many people are excellent candidates for treatments such as peritoneal dialysis (PD) or home hemodialysis (HHD), both of which are administered in the home and offer a range of health and lifestyle benefits. Fresenius Kidney Care offers the education, training, programs, and support to help home dialysis patients be successful.
We are committed to reaching people early in their kidney disease journey. Early intervention allows for the potential to slow the progression of kidney disease and ultimately support improved health outcomes. We are offering hands-on support and expanding care coordination activities to encourage people living with kidney disease to take an active role in their care earlier on, including management of their hypertension, diabetes, and other comorbidities. When treatment is needed, we help develop a plan for an optimal start to treatment.
