Clinical Focus

March is Kidney Disease Awareness Month!

Early diagnosis is critical in creating a comprehensive treatment plan for kidney disease. Individuals with diabetes and hypertension are at especially high risk.

We assess comorbidities to identify risk factors and create plans to reduce rehospitalization risks and support interventions that maintain health by proactively triaging new symptoms to support immediate interventions. We also offer 24-hour telephone nursing supports for urgent needs.

These measures have allowed us to provide one of the lowest re-hospitalization rates to our patients in all of our service areas. 

Question Corner

What makes Elite’s hospice services different from others?

Your care team at Elite creates a customized care plan for our patients. While Medicare standards dictate visits every 2 weeks by the nursing professional, Elite creates treatment plans that address the patient and family needs. This often means a weekly visit or more.

This personalized care plan means increased visit frequencies to support creating a comprehensive comfort strategy. Nursing aide visits to provide personal care for comfort and quality of life. Chaplain and social worker visits to address the patient and family holistically and beyond their physical needs. Access to therapy professionals with specialized training in hospice support the team to create comfort and optimize end-of-life care for basic needs, like being comfortable in bed, eating a meal, and engaging in massage for pain management.
