Treatment of chronic diseases at home

Treating people at home in their living rooms, instead of at the hospital, is an approach that can improve quality of life for many patients. “People with severe or chronic diseases often suffer from depression and anxiety. They have the feeling that they are powerless and have little control over their life,” says Heike Spaderna, Professor for Health Psychology at the University of Trier. Being able to choose the treatment time and having more time for yourself and your family can make a big difference in terms of mental health.

High-quality home therapies

“The key to successful treatment at home is the fact that the patients are not alone. Having family or friends to help out and competent caregivers to monitor the treatment is crucial.”

If these conditions are in place, treatment at home may be an enormous psychological advantage for the patient.

Is treatment at home just as effective and safe as it is in a hospital?

Some patients fear they will only receive second-rate treatment at home. This couldn’t be farther from the truth, as the experiences reported from our home-treatment projects are encouraging.

“Home dialysis has major advantages, even from a medical perspective. People who receive their treatment at home are healthier and have better results than patients in dialysis centers.”

Simone Klein, head of the Home Hemodialysis Service at B. Braun in Germany

Parenteral nutrition at home

When patients require parenteral nutrition, they often recover better at home than in a hospital. Furthermore, home care patients have also demonstrated better therapy adherence. This means that they can be better prepared to keep up with treatment and, for example, they are less likely to voluntarily stop taking their medication. 

“Patients who are supported by us at home and give themselves infusions not only have a better quality of life, but they are also less likely to have a relapse of their respective condition and suffer from complications, and they recover quicker overall.”

Zbigniew Zapalowski, Business Manager at B. Braun Sheffield and responsible for the Home Parenteral Nutrition program in Great Britain
