Comprehensive Disease Management, or CDM, is a holistic approach to the management of chronic and life-limiting disease utilizing an X-factor approach to guide those we serve through the complex and often turbulent journey that is living life with a serious illness by providing care grounded in Christ-like values of patience, honesty and compassion.
When you choose to implement CDM services, Phoenix Home Care and Hospice professionals will begin by setting goals based on your loved one’s needs. We want to be your healthcare experts, using our experience to help you navigate the complex world of long-term care. A comprehensive disease management plan can also help you increase your loved one’s comfort while decreasing emergency visits, hospitalizations, falls, and other issues that often accompany a chronic illness.
One of the major goals of comprehensive disease management is educating caregivers on a variety of health care resources. Although a number of resources exist, finding and utilizing them can be daunting for caregivers. At Phoenix Home Care and Hospice, we’re committed to helping patients and their families connect to and qualify for community resources, including Medicare and Medicaid services.
When you’re caring for a loved one with a chronic illness, planning ahead is important. Thorough advance care planning is essential to ensure your loved one is well cared for throughout their journey when living with a life-limiting illness. Completing Power of Attorney paperwork and end-of-life advance directives, provides peace for the entire family. Phoenix Home Care and Hospice is available to provide assistance with a variety of advance care planning strategies including completion of Durable Power of Attorney papers and disease-specific advance directives.
When our experts establish your comprehensive disease management plan, they will identify a number of ways to keep your loved one safer as their disease progresses. In turn, you’ll likely reduce the occurrence of avoidable medical expenses such as emergency room visits and hospitalizations.
