2. PD Adaptation & Holistic Care Support
The initial phase of home-based PD is the most challenging when the patients and their families adapt what they have learnt in hospital to the home-based setting. NKF helps them to start well on PD with an extended period of hand- holding.
Our nurse will make daily home visits for up to one month to ensure that patients are able to perform PD by themselves competently. They will also monitor patients’ outcomes and make sure that they are doing well with the PD care plan.
Our MSWs will provide financial and psychological assessments and assistance accordingly.
Our dietitians will help patients understand their dietary requirements, assess their intake of nutrients and provide supplements, if necessary.
Our exercise specialists will tailor-make suitable types of exercises that patients can do at home to improve their fitness levels.
