What is Infusion Therapy? Home Infusion Therapy involves the administration of medications and nutrition therapy using parenteral and enteral routes. This care is administered to patients in the convenient and comfortable surroundings of comfortable surroundings of their own home and allows them to take a more active role in their own health care. Home Infusion Therapy is not only more cost-effective than inpatient treatment; it eases the stress and anxiety of treatment resulting in better patient outcomes.
Millions of Americans provide care to parents, relatives, and/or friends living with illnesses or a chronic health condition. Their contribution to health care is critical and their impact is significant. Evidence shows, however, that most caregivers are ill-prepared for their role and provide ongoing care with little or no personal support. The Family Caregiver Support Program at Marian Regional Medical Center is designed to empower caregivers as part of our health care team. At the heart of the program is the Family Caregiver Navigator who assesses and links caregivers to a variety of services.
