Dialysis at Home

Although going home with dialysis is a lot of responsibility for you, and perhaps your loved one, being at home gives you more flexibility and independence with your dialysis. The benefits to your health and well-being are huge and your quality of life can be greatly improved. Patients who are interested in being considered for home dialysis must undergo a formal evaluation with the dialysis team. Talk with your nephrologist if you are interested in obtaining a home dialysis evaluation.

Currently, Wisconsin Dialysis offers two options for dialysis at home: Peritoneal Dialysis and Home Hemodialysis. Let’s look at these options more closely.
