Chronic Disease Management Services
Learning to live with a chronic illness can be challenging for yourself, your friends and family. This often impacts your mental wellbeing while dealing with existing physical illness.
Fortunately, support is available to help you deal with the demands of your illness and reduce the stress and mental burden it brings.
Vital Home Health Services offers high-quality, personalised chronic Illness care packages to keep you, your body and mind in the best shape possible to live independantly with your condition.
What is Chronic Disease?
Chronic disease refers to a serious long-term illness, usually permanent, that requires ongoing, long-term treatment and management. Some are a threat to life, while others require intense care over time. Common examples in Australia include cancer, diabetes, arthritis, dust disease and heart problems.
No matter the condition, chronic illness is extremely challenging for the patient and their loved ones. It can impact their physical, emotional and mental well-being and often affects their daily activities, relationships, self-image, and overall quality of life.
What is Chronic Disease Management?
While the many types of chronic illness can differ, they share one thing in common: the need for medical management.
Fortunately, thanks to advanced treatments and therapies, patients dealing with a chronic condition can live at home. However, hospitalisation can occur when they fail to look after themselves properly or appropriate care is not being received.
If you have a chronic disease, you can avoid complications and improve your general health using a Chronic Disease Management service. Working with a professional provider or caregiver helps you learn how to manage chronic disease and take better care of yourself – from taking medication on time to accessing support specific to your condition – improving your health and reducing the potential for hospital care.
And the team from Vital can help you.
