Don’t miss out on the most 

important things in life.

You are the one dealing with your disease every day, so you have the right to control your own time. Travelling 3x per week to a dialysis clinic should not be part of your life

Fixed dialysis sessions at the dialysis center and being dependent on the clinic’s schedule can be a shadow of the past with home hemodialysis.

Training: Get trained by our therapy experts on how to do dialysis yourself.
Support: Have access to our experienced dialysis therapists 24/7 whenever you need support during your dialysis treatment.

In close cooperation with your dialysis center, we support you from the very beginning of your treatment. Once your setup at home is ready, our specialized therapy specialists will visit you and be at your side at your first dialysis treatments at home.
In the beginning, the treatment is performed by our therapy specialists, and with every treatment, you will gradually take over more tasks: from setting up the machines, to cannulation, and handling simple machine errors. Our home service team will answer all your questions about home treatment during the training phase until you can perform the treatment fully at home. We know this can feel scary initially, but our highly experienced team will carefully take you on this journey and make sure that you feel safe during this transition by offering in-person training sessions at your home.
