In-Home Chronic Illness Support in the Bay Area

Living with a chronic illness makes it challenging for some to maintain an independent lifestyle. Even if they need assistance with routine activities like dishwashing, dressing, or getting to appointments on time, they may still appreciate their independence and worry about being placed to an adult care facility. In these cases, many people find it helpful to get in-home chronic illness support, which may involve anything from helping with daily duties to assisting with symptom management in order to improve the quality of life for those who are living with a chronic disease.

If your loved one has a chronic condition, they may be able to get the care they need without disrupting their lives thanks to J&M Homecare Services’ in-home care services. Our major focus is on providing quality home care for people with chronic conditions in California’s North Bay, East Bay, and Central Valley regions so they can live independently at home for as long as possible, where they may be near the people and things that mean most to them.

What Bay Area Families Should Know About Chronic Illnesses & Chronic Illness Support

A chronic illness is a medical condition that lasts for a long period of time, often months or years. Chronic illnesses can vary from minor to severe, and may require ongoing monitoring and treatment. Unlike acute illnesses that come on suddenly and usually last for a short period, chronic illnesses are often long-term and may require life-long care and support.

Some common chronic illnesses include:

  • Diabetes – a lifelong condition in which blood glucose levels become too high.
  • Heart disease – a general term used to describe various types of heart conditions that affect the structure or function of the heart.
  • Asthma – a long-term lung condition that makes it difficult to breathe due to inflammation in the airways.
  • Arthritis – a condition characterized by joint pain, stiffness, and inflammation.
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) – a group of lung diseases that cause breathing difficulties due to blockage of airflow in the lungs.
  • Kidney Disease – a condition in which the kidneys do not function properly, leading to buildup of waste products in the body.
