Dialysis Services Survey and Home Dialysis Information

Do you or someone you know require hemodialysis services? If so, please complete the survey at http://www.dciinc.org/request-services/ . This survey is put together by Dialysis Clinic, Inc. to assess our need for dialysis services in the community.

For those who need dialysis, home hemodialysis may be a good option.  This process, however, requires a care partner who is specifically trained to work with the individual receiving hemodialysis.  If there is enough interest, Sanford Health in Bemidji is willing to do a 4-6 hour training here in International Falls for potential caregivers to give them a basic knowledge of home hemodialysis.  An additional 3-4 days training with the individual receiving the hemodialysis would then be required in order to qualify the care partner to assist with the home hemodialysis.  We are looking to gauge the public’s interest in this opportunity. If you are interested, please contact Melissa Tate at mtate@isd361.k12.mn.
