Dialysis in a Center
For some people, the best treatment option is to receive hemodialysis in one of our centers.
What to bring
After a couple weeks of treatment, you will have discovered what helps keep you comfortable and entertained in the dialysis chair. Here are some ideas for what to bring with you:
- Friend or family member
- Light snacks
- Warm, comfy clothes
- Book or e-reader
- Portable music player
- Laptop or tablet

Dialysis at home
When we say “in-center dialysis,” we’re referring to hemodialysis treatment in a clinic. With self-dialysis at home, you may choose peritoneal dialysis or hemodialysis.
Depending on your schedule, health needs and general preferences, you might prefer home dialysis over in-center treatment. Do your research on both before making a decision. Our free Choices class explains the possibilities. Sign up for it by phoning 206-292-2771, ext. 1082.
