Q: Where do I find help for my aging parents who no longer drive and need regular medical care and support in order to remain in their home?
A: Capital Caring Health, the premiere provider of advanced illness, home and hospice care for all ages, now offers a special service designed for adults 65 years and older, who are home limited due to illness or disability. Primary Care at Home is home-based medical and social support for the long term that is provided in a private home, assisted living or retirement community.
Q: What is the cost?
A: Primary Care at Home is a unique service that is offered to residents of the Greater Washington area at no additional cost. Our expert medical and social team led by Dr. Eric De Jonge coordinates all the services needed to age safely at home, providing comfort and peace of mind to both the patient and their spouse and/or caregivers.
Our services include: Primary care house calls by doctors, nurse practitioners and social workers who specialize in the care of elders with advanced illness; round-the-clock coordination of care—we arrange primary and urgent care specialists, hospital care and the daily support services needed to age in place in the home; mobile technology that enables us to provide in-home diagnostic tests (bloodwork, X-rays, ultrasound); and a computer portal for streamlined communication with our team. We’re also committed to working with entire families, so all key people understand the care plan. Primary Care at Home is elder care that delivers peace of mind.
