Satellite WellBound Offers Superior Patient Education Through its Better LIFE™ Wellness Classes

Satellite Healthcare was the first healthcare services company to focus on comprehensive pre-dialysis patient education. This unique clinical approach offers patients with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) a higher quality of life as well as fewer CKD complications and reduced episodic spikes in healthcare costs.

Satellite WellBound Better LIFE™ Wellness Education classes are free to CKD patients and their families. They focus on topics such as:

  • CKD pathophysiology
  • CKD treatment options: in-center hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis, home hemodialysis and transplantation
  • CKD nutrition 
  • Exercise for people with CKD
  • Controlling co-morbidities to slow the progression of the disease, such as controlling blood pressure, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
  • Stress management

This emphasis on CKD health literacy results in more engaged patients who are more proactive in managing their health. In addition, it often helps patients slow the progression of their kidney disease, delays their need for dialysis, and, if the need arises, smoothes the transition to dialysis.
