Chronic Disease Management - Successful Living
There are more than 133 million Americans who have at least one chronic condition such as diabetes, heart failure, coronary artery or pulmonary disease.
Individuals are more than the label a disease or life challenge places on them. Chronic illness is only part of your life or the life of a loved one. There is much more. So, we help make sure a chronic condition doesn’t consume every thought or action.
Each day is unique and to what degree the body will cooperate is unpredictable. We understand certain tasks will require much more time and attention. So we’ll help you understand how activities can be modified in some way or even postponed to a time when symptoms are not having as big of an impact.
At Interim HealthCare of Wausau, WI, we help you take control of your disease with our successful Living program.
Acceptance of a chronic disease doesn’t mean complacency. There are things you can do to take control of your life and live successfully. Our extensive self-management education is a valuable part of our program. Written in easy-to-understand language, we guide you through achieving far more than you ever dreamed possible. This helps you become an active participant in your disease management, actively seeking solutions to problems that arise and taking on a proactive approach to life. It takes work to overcome certain hurdles – and we’ll help you each step of the way.
