If you or a loved one suffer from Crohn's & Colitis and currently receive IV medications, with COVID-19 cases going way up, it can be a stressful and often scary experience having to be out and about. Are you aware that home infusion might be a safe alternative? You or your loved one can receive IV medications in the safety of your own home, saving time and money by choosing the time best suited for you (evening or weekends) with no travel costs. Home infusions are less of a drain on the already taxed healthcare system and are covered by most insurances.
We urge patients to ask their healthcare providers to receive their current infusions in the home. At Upstate HomeCare, we have been providing IV medications safely in the home for over 25 years. Having your infusions in the home means less exposure to areas and people who might be carrying this deadly virus. The spread of this disease depends on us limiting unnecessary exposure and keeping patients out of the hospital and clinical settings.
If you or a loved one is receiving treatment in an infusion suite, do not cancel or reschedule as it is vital and essential to your health. Instead, contact Upstate HomeCare to discuss receiving these treatments in the comfort of your own home.
