If you’re aggressively treating an advanced disease and experiencing physical challenges that confine you to your home, TRU Home Health can make a difference. Managing pain and symptoms is our specialty and your comfort is our greatest concern. In collaboration with your primary physicians, our home health care team will visit you where you live, providing personalized, skilled, holistic support that increases your quality of life and decreases your stress and symptoms. Moreover, we’ll work with your doctors to coordinate your care, monitor your progress, and minimize the need for hospitalizations.
How does TRU Home Health enhance the care you’re now receiving?
Based out of Boulder County, unlike traditional medical care, the focus of the TRU Home Health program is not on curing your disease, but on providing palliative care (also known as comfort care) in order to improve your quality of life. Our home health aim is to help you gain more control over the management of your illness, prevent emergencies, and minimize suffering caused by your illness or its treatment so that you can live every day more fully and confidently.
As a TRU Home Health patient, you will be regularly visited wherever you live by a team of palliative care specialists – comprised of a physician, nurse, certified nursing assistant, social worker and chaplain – dedicated to relieving your physical, emotional and spiritual distress. This home health team will collaborate closely with your primary physicians, who will continue to manage the treatment of your disease as you receive our additional support.
