Benefits of Managing Multiple Chronic Conditions with Home Care

An estimated 85% of older adults over the age of 65 have at least one chronic condition while 65% have more than one chronic health condition.

The leading causes of death for older Americans include heart disease, cancer, COVID-19, stroke, respiratory illnesses and Diabetes.

Currently over 90% of our nation’s healthcare expenditures (over $3.8 trillion) are spent of people with chronic conditions.

A recent report commissioned by the National Coalition on Care Coordination supports these findings, citing, “a need for increased home-based, health care services.” Fortunately, with advances in monitoring and telemedicine, complex medical care in the home can match the care delivered in a hospital or other care facility.

Alliance Senior Care offers Specialized Care Home Care which address multiple chronic conditions with customized services to meet your specific circumstances.

We create a partnership with our clients and Specialized Care Services evolve as the needs of our clients evolve.
