Living with a chronic disease isn't easy. If your loved one needs assistance managing the daily challenges of their chronic disease, we can help. Our home nursing services in Easley, SC are designed to provide quality care and education for your loved one's condition.
Chronic Disease Care
At Interim HealthCare of the Upstate, we take a holistic and proactive approach to chronic diseases. Not only do we provide medical assistance, but we also help your loved one learn about their condition.
Being diagnosed with a chronic disease can feel like the end of the road. Our nurses urge their patients to become informed about their disease so they can self-manage their symptoms and issues in the future. We offer home nursing services for the following chronic diseases:
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). Most commonly caused by smoking, this disease usually involves chronic bronchitis and emphysema. Our nurses can provide medication reminders and administration, transportation to follow-up appointments, and assistance with daily activities and chores.
- Diabetes. This disease affects nearly 26 million Americans. We can help customize a plan for you that helps you understand the disease, monitor your symptoms and warning signs, manage all your medications, and learn how to exercise. Total body health and care is essential for individuals with diabetes, and our nurses are here to provide comprehensive care.
- Congestive Heart Failure (CHF)- Also known as "heart failure", this chronic condition affects the pumping of strength of the heart muscle which allows fluid to build up. Because the heart cannot pump enough blood to other areas of the body, fluid buildup is a common problem in the legs, lungs, liver, and abdomen. We'll work with you to keep your symptoms under control and help you manage your medications.
- Coronary Artery Disease (CAD). Commonly known as heart disease, this affects about 13 million Americans. We take care to work directly with you and your loved one to create a custom care plan that will meet their needs. From medication reminders and assistance, to developing a heart healthy diet, our home nursing services can greatly benefit your loved one and help reduce their symptoms.
