Chronic illness care is a coordinated approach to managing a patient’s health and well-being. The goal is to prevent or minimize the impact of chronic illness on your life. Hibiscus Health & Wellness offers personalized chronic illness care programs to help you manage your symptoms and minimize the risk of hospitalization and emergency department visits. We offer chronic illness care for numerous diseases, including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, asthma, arthritis, and back pain.
High Blood Pressure
If you have high blood pressure, also known as hypertension, you’re not alone. According to the American Heart Association, about 75 million American adults have high blood pressure. While there’s no cure for hypertension, there are treatments that can help you manage the symptoms. Your hypertension treatment plan will likely include lifestyle changes and medications.
A person’s cholesterol level has a lot to do with their risk for heart disease. High cholesterol is a serious problem because it can lead to a buildup of plaque in the arteries, which can block blood flow and cause a heart attack or stroke. Your treatment plan may include recommendations for a healthy diet, regular exercise, and prescription cholesterol-lowering medications.
If you have diabetes, you know it’s a lifelong condition that must be managed daily. It can be complex and challenging, but you can live a full, healthy life with diabetes.
We design a comprehensive diabetes care plan, which is basically a road map to help you stay on track with your diabetes management.
Asthma is a chronic illness that can flare up unexpectedly. There’s no cure for asthma, but the symptoms can be managed. As a part of your asthma care plan, we may recommend asthma medications, keep a record of your flare-ups, identify triggers, help you avoid triggers, and create an asthma action plan in case of flare-ups.
Arthritis is a chronic condition wherein one or more of your joints are inflamed, leading to increased pain and stiffness during certain movements. We provide a comprehensive arthritis care plan, which may include medications to reduce pain and discomfort, physical therapy to improve mobility, and lifestyle changes to improve the symptoms.
Chronic illness care for back pain often revolves around managing the pain itself. This can be done through a combination of medication, physical therapy, and other treatments.
Medication is often used to help control the pain, while physical therapy can help to strengthen the back and help to prevent further injuries.
