Seniors Needing Dialysis
For Elders who need Dialysis
For many elders – and their caregivers – the burden of traveling for frequent dialysis treatments is overwhelming, especially in the winter.
Tenants at Kittay House Senior Apartments can take advantage of a 15-station, state-of-the art Hemodialysis Special Therapy Center – conveniently located adjacent to Kittay House. The center provides for stretcher dialysis, as well as a dedicated room for special clinical cases. Each station has a TV and internet access. Operated by Bronx Nephro Care, Inc. of New York, the service is covered by Medicare, Medicaid and Private Insurance.
