In-home medical care for people with intellectual disabilities.

DispatchHealth’s extensively trained professionals are standing by to provide comfortable and convenient in-home healthcare to individuals who have intellectual disabilities (ID).

We take the hassle out of healthcare for people with intellectual disabilities.

Nobody likes visiting a germ-filled urgent care center or hectic emergency room, especially those who have an intellectual disability (ID). Those with intellectual disabilities often have a more difficult time with these visits than other people, making urgent care and ER visits for non-life-threatening conditions stressful for both patients and their caregivers. Strange noises, coughing and sneezing patients, crowded spaces, uncomfortable furniture, and hours-long wait times can all exacerbate an already stressful outing.

There’s a better way to get healthcare for those with intellectual disabilities. DispatchHealth provides world-class, in-home care to take the stress out of medical situations. In-home medical care eliminates the stressors of leaving the house, and our medical teams are experienced with and sensitive toward a multitude of intellectual disabilities.

With a simple phone call or click of a button on our website or app, DispatchHealth can send a fully-equipped, board-certified medical team to your home to provide prompt treatment for a wide array of acute and chronic health concerns. We can provide vital medical services in the comfort and familiarity of your own home—in fact, we can treat about 70 percent of what the emergency can, and with more sensitivity toward those with intellectual disabilities than you’ll find at most emergency rooms and urgent care clinics. Not only will the convenience of in-home care benefit your loved one by eliminating environmental stressors, but it will also provide much-needed relief for you, the caregiver, by sparing you the hassle of taking your loved one to a bustling healthcare facility.

An all-inclusive approach to medical treatment.

DispatchHealth’s medical teams, which include a physician assistant or nurse practitioner, DispatchHealth medical technician, and an ER physician who is available by phone, are equipped to perform many procedures and diagnostic tests on site at a fraction of the cost of the emergency room. Once we have assisted your loved one, we’ll send a detailed medical report to his or her primary care physician and/or assisted living community to help ensure continuity of care.
