New Service Premieres in Chevy Chase, MD/NW D.C. and Falls Church /Arlington, VA
The rapidly growing population of seniors can find it hard to get primary care services they need. Regular care is critical at any age, but especially for those over 65 who may face diabetes, dementia, heart disease, and other serious chronic health issues. These conditions have a major impact on quality of life and independence.
When you suffer from advanced illness, getting to a doctor’s office may seem hard or impossible. If that sounds familiar, Capital Caring Health’s new Primary Care at Home (PCH) program may be just what the doctor ordered.
Starting this December, we will provide the primary medical care and social support you need – delivered in the comfort and safety of your own home. With a focus on primary and urgent care, the PCH team concentrates on maintaining health and independence at home. The program offers:
A dedicated, mobile team to coordinate all the medical and social services, from diagnosis to treatment to monitoring
State-of-the-art mobile technology and access to daily support services
24/7 phone access to nurse practitioners and physicians with a 30-minute or less response time for urgent questions
Affordable services for any home-limited individual, tailored to your specific health and financial circumstances
When needed, a close link to Capital Caring Health’s premium hospice services
Through these services, we help you avoid unnecessary 911 calls, ER visits or hospital stays and thereby reduce stress, anxiety, and costs. Our goal is to help you live life to its fullest—with dignity and independence—and provide peace of mind.
Primary Care at Home services will initially be available in the Chevy Chase, MD/NW D.C. and Falls Church/Arlington, VA areas. Additional neighborhoods will be added at a future date.
PCH is part of a larger initiative, called Elder Health, designed to help older adults with advanced illness. The effort builds on more than 40 years of non-profit experience providing expert and compassionate care for those with advanced illness in Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C.
The Primary Care at Home Program is led by our new Chief of Geriatrics, Dr. Eric De Jonge, who has built similar elder services in the D.C. region for over 20 years.
