Renal failure or kidney failure describes a medical condition in which the kidneys fail to adequately filter toxins and waste products from the blood. Symptoms can vary from person to person.
Your doctor will tell you what you should and should not eat to reduce the buildup of toxins that are normally handled by the kidneys. Your care provider can help you stay on the diet recommended by your physician.
If dialysis is needed your care provider can help with travel care assistance services on the dialysis trips.
The care provider can assist patients with activities of daily living, such as:
- Ambulating (walking)

- Medication reminders
- Run errands
- Light housekeeping
- Diet monitoring
