Treatment

At Home Treatment

Mount Baker Kidney Center has been offering home dialysis programs since 1982. Home dialysis allows you to receive treatment in the comfort of your own home and can help you to feel healthier, with more energy for the things you enjoy.

Just about anyone with a desire to take an active role in their health care can do home dialysis. Preparation for home dialysis consists of a training administered in our Dialysis Training Unit (Home Dialysis Program) by a Mount Baker Kidney Center registered nurse. Depending on whether you choose home hemodialysis or home peritoneal dialysis, your training can extend between two to four weeks before you will be ready to conduct your treatment at home.
