About home dialysis

There's a better way to receive dialysis care for chronic kidney disease - right from the comfort of your own home. Home dialysis eliminates the need to shuttle back and forth to the clinic for treatment three times a week. It also offers a more flexible and independent lifestyle, and therapeutic benefits that may reduce the need for as many medications, and, in some cases, the advantage of receiving treatments while you sleep.

Rochester Regional Health is proud to be the Greater Rochester region's first provider of Home Hemodialysis and offers several at-home methods that are safe, easy to learn, and more effective in getting blood clean, which means you'll feel better.

Experience matters

Our compassionate, highly skilled healthcare professionals provide training and support to help you make the switch to home-based treatments with confidence. At-home therapies are supported by a team of board-certified nephrologists, registered nurses, technicians, social workers, dieticians, and other team members dedicated to your care and comfort. Let us help you gain a newfound sense of freedom. More control. A better life.

Hemodialysis treatments remove waste products and extra fluid from the blood that build up due to failing kidneys. The number of hours per treatment and the number of treatments per week vary because each type of treatment works at a different speed.

Home hemodialysis

Home Hemodialysis requires a care partner, usually a family member or friend, who will also receive training and will need to be with you during each treatment. With this method, blood is drawn through a tube in the arm or a catheter and pumped through a filter on a portable machine, where it is cleansed and returned to the body. This is usually done four to five days a week.

Peritoneal dialysis

Both Peritoneal Dialysis and Home Hemodialysis treatments remove waste products and extra fluid from the blood that build up due to failing kidneys. The number of hours per treatment and the number of treatments per week vary because each type of treatment works at a different speed.
