Kidney Supportive Care

Member for

4 years 8 months
Submitted by Jacqueline.Ste… on Thu, 14/10/2021 - 15:20

How we can help you 

We provide support for you if you are living with chronic kidney disease or end stage kidney disease. We support you from your initial diagnosis until you are nearing the end of your life.  

Chronic kidney disease means your kidneys are damaged and can’t filter blood the way they should. The disease is called “chronic” because the damage to your kidneys happens slowly over a long period of time. This damage can cause wastes to build up in your body and other health problems.

We have specialised nurses who coordinate your care and work with dieticians, social workers and specialised renal doctors (nephrologists). Our team will help you manage your symptoms and health problems. We provide physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual care to support you and your family or carers.

Our clinic appointments are located in the Kidney Care Centre.

Submitted by Jacqueline.Ste… on Thu, 14/10/2021 - 11:01

How we can help you

We provide dialysis services for adults in hospital as well as those in the community. You need dialysis when your kidneys have difficulty filtering your blood. Dialysis is a treatment that:

  • Removes waste, salts and extra water from your body
  • Helps control your blood pressure
  • Keeps a safe level of chemicals in your blood.

We provide two different types of dialysis:

  • Haemodialysis is when your blood is pumped out of your body and cleaned through a filtering machine and then replaced.
  • Peritoneal dialysis works inside your body using inside lining of your belly to act as a natural filter. A sterile fluid is washed in and out of your belly to clean your blood.
