Chronic Disease Support

Comprehensive chronic disease management tailored for senior well-being and independence.

What is Chronic Disease Support?

Chronic Disease Support is an essential service focused on assisting individuals living with long-term health conditions. These conditions, such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and arthritis, require ongoing medical attention and can limit daily activities. Over 85% of U.S. adults aged 65 and over have at least one chronic illness, with many experiencing multiple conditions​​.

At Home Matters Caregiving, our Chronic Disease Support care services are tailored to address these challenges. We provide comprehensive support, ranging from medication reminders to lifestyle adjustments, ensuring that each individual’s unique needs are met. Our goal is to enhance the quality of life for those living with chronic illnesses, promoting independence and providing reliable, compassionate care​​.

Who needs Chronic Disease Support?

Chronic Disease Support is particularly crucial for older adults, who are disproportionately affected by chronic illnesses. The risk of chronic conditions increases with age, making it essential to focus on managing these diseases effectively in the elderly population. Physical and mental health needs of older adults are unique and require specialized attention to maintain their independence and well-being​​.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the signs that a senior may need chronic disease support?

Seniors may need chronic disease support if they show signs of difficulty managing their medications, struggle with daily activities, or experience increased health complications. Noticeable declines in cognitive abilities or physical health also indicate a need for additional support.

Can chronic disease support help in managing multiple conditions simultaneously?

Yes, chronic disease support is designed to manage multiple conditions simultaneously. Care plans are tailored to address each individual’s unique health challenges, ensuring coordinated care for all existing medical conditions.

How does chronic disease support improve the quality of life for seniors?

Chronic disease support improves seniors’ quality of life by providing comprehensive care that addresses physical, emotional, and social needs. This includes medication reminders, nutritional advice, exercise support, and emotional and social engagement, contributing to overall well-being.

Is family involvement important in chronic disease support for seniors?

Family involvement is crucial in chronic disease support. It ensures that care plans align with the senior’s preferences and needs, and it also provides emotional support. Family members often collaborate with care providers to create a more effective and comfortable care environment.

How is the effectiveness of chronic disease support measured?

The effectiveness of chronic disease support is measured through regular assessments of the senior’s health status, monitoring improvements or changes in their condition, and evaluating their overall satisfaction with the care provided. Feedback from seniors and their families also plays a vital role in assessing effectiveness.

How much does chronic disease support cost?

The cost of in-home senior care can vary widely depending on factors such as location, the level of care needed, and specific services required. More specialized care, such as dementia care or around-the-clock assistance, may be significantly more expensive than simple companion care.

To get accurate and personalized cost estimates, an assessment should be conducted to determine individual needs and circumstances. Connect with a Home Matter’s Aging Expert to get a better understanding of the cost structure in your area and discuss payment options or insurance coverage, if applicable.
