After initially becoming popular in the 1960s with the creation of dialyzers for home use, at-home hemodialysis is experiencing a newfound resurgence. Today’s technology and advances allow for easier-to-use equipment, home delivery of supplies and blood work monitoring that's done remotely by phone. 


Whether you’re getting ready for dialysis or want to switch to a different type of dialysis, our Treatment Decision Guide can help you decide what treatment options might be best for you.

We’re here to help, 24/7

You may be doing dialysis at home, but you’re never alone. If you ever have questions about your equipment or your health, we’re here with 24/7 on-call nursing coverage. Together with a technical support team, your on-call, home-dialysis nurse will work with you to provide answers or solutions for everything from health concerns to equipment malfunctions. Your nurse will also give you a special local number for you to call.

Monthly check-ins with your team

In addition to daily support and health monitoring, you’ll also have a scheduled monthly check-in at your local dialysis center and a meeting with your treatment team. Making sure your at-home hemodialysis treatment and overall care plan are working for you can help you stay your healthiest—so you can live your fullest. Your monthly check-in is also a good time to ask any questions or discuss ongoing care with your doctor or nurse.
