Can The Medical Concierge® provide temporary assistance in managing the medical needs of patients when a primary carer is absent, for example due to work or vacation requirements?
Yes. The Medical Concierge® can assist by handling known as well as new medical issues that arise in your absence, including taking patients to medical appointments and following up and arranging additional services such as nursing care if required.
“Since Dad went into kidney failure almost 3 years ago I haven’t been able to be away for more than a weekend. It’s not just the three-times-per-week dialysis, which I could probably organise someone else to help with, it’s that there always seems to be a complication that needs another appointment, tests to be run and decisions to be made. He’s not really up to doing that on his own and really needs me there to help. I wish there was someone I could turn to who could shoulder the load even for just a couple of weeks so I could take a family holiday without feeling worried about leaving him.”
