For the convenient, in-home medical care you need, rely on DispatchHealth. We’ll make sure you don’t have to go through it alone.
We provide healthcare alternatives for individuals who need a convenient & all-inclusive service
Lasting for an average of seven years, the reality of Alzheimer’s disease is its gradual progression. Throughout this timeframe, a person can experience mild cognitive impairment (MCI), a loss of energy and spontaneity, an inability to comprehend locations, times, and dates, and eventual memory loss. Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia don’t just affect the patient—they affect the caregiver, too. The 24/7 task of caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s can take a toll on caregivers physically and emotionally, so the last thing you need is to plan an in-office healthcare visit. In fact, traditional facility-based medical systems can be extremely overwhelming for people with Alzheimer’s, as it removes them from their familiar environment and exposes them to an onslaught of stressors, from travel to overcrowded waiting rooms.
Instead of mentally preparing yourself and your dependent for this disruptive experience, turn to DispatchHealth. We deliver integrated, convenient, and affordable medical care to your home, including treatment for common healthcare issues and complex illnesses such as pneumonia. Our on-demand, mobile healthcare teams remove the challenges found in a traditional ER setting, helping people with comorbidities get the efficient medical attention that they deserve in the comfort and safety of their homes. To make an appointment, all you need is our app, website address, or phone number—we’ll arrive within a few hours of the request.
The sophisticated care you need
DispatchHealth’s friendly and approachable medical teams are composed of qualified physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners, ensuring that either you or your loved one receives personalized hands-on care from experts. Each medical team will arrive onsite with a kit that contains more than half of the technologies and tools found in a typical ER, including blood tests, IVs, and a 12-lead EKG. This way, in addition to treating acute health problems, our teams are prepared to perform a variety of advanced tests and treatments, prescribe medications, and even suture wounds. Following treatment, our teams will send a detailed report to the patient’s primary care physician and living communities. All of this and more is offered at one-tenth of the medical cost of an ER visit, as we accept all major insurance plans. With DispatchHealth as your new medical team, you can rest easy knowing you and your loved ones are in good hands.
