What is chronic care?

Chronic care is a personalized healthcare approach designed to manage and improve the quality of life for individuals living with long-term medical conditions. Whether you have diabetes, hypertension, asthma, arthritis, or any other persistent health issue, chronic care is the compass that guides you through the complexities of managing these conditions.

What conditions benefit from chronic care?

Chronic care is not limited to specific conditions; it embraces a wide range of health challenges that persist over time and often require ongoing medical attention. 

Common conditions that need chronic care include:

  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Kidney disease
  • Mental health disorders

If you're dealing with a condition that doesn't have a quick fix and requires ongoing monitoring and support, chronic care is a must.

What happens at chronic care appointments?

At chronic care appointments, you step into a healthcare journey designed with your unique needs in mind. These appointments differ from routine checkups.

During these visits, your Gorman Medical, PC provider discusses your symptoms, assesses your overall health, and adjusts your treatment plan as needed.  Depending on your condition's complexity, chronic care appointments often involve various healthcare professionals, such as doctors, nurses, dietitians, and therapists. 

It's also an opportunity for you to ask questions, voice concerns, and collaborate with your medical team to set realistic health goals. In turn, they work together to tailor your care plan, ensuring it aligns with your lifestyle and preferences. 

These appointments can also include:

  • Education about disease management
  • Medication management
  • Lifestyle modifications

In addition, they can provide guidance on navigating the emotional and psychological challenges that come with chronic conditions.

Why is chronic care important?

Chronic care bridges the gap between diagnosis and a healthier, more fulfilling life, offering:

  • Enhanced quality of life (helps you function at your best)
  • Preventive care (prevents complications with regular monitoring and early intervention)
  • Empowerment (promotes self-care and independence)
  • Cost savings (helps prevent complications and hospitalizations, reducing health care costs)
  • Emotional support (helps you cope with the psychological aspects of your condition)
  • Personalized care (recognizes your unique needs; offers a customized treatment plan)
