When you or a member of your family become reliant on regular dialysis treatments, you need to build your lifestyle around a schedule of pre-arranged appointments that require your regular attendance at a particular place and time in order for you to continue enjoying a healthy and productive life.

This can often mean being tied to the hospital you are assigned by your doctor and, along with hundreds of other patients, being fitted in at times that may not be convenient to you.

This is not the fault of your hospital. It is a reflection of the scarcity of dialysis treatment locations combined with the ever-growing numbers of patients who need to be treated. Demand continues to exceed supply, and this condition is likely to become exacerbated as our society grows steadily older.

Fortunately, some privately run health care facilities are investing in dialysis equipment in an effort to relieve some of the pressure on the public health system. They offer this service within the government system, in addition to serving private patients.

Through your family doctor or specialist, you can arrange to take advantage of our professionally staffed and modern dialysis facilities.
 
Our dialysis centres are located in Brockville and Stoney Creek, Ontario

Receive Replagal® treatment in the comfort of your own home, according to your own schedule
Bayshore's Replagal (agalsidase alfa) HomePATH Program, sponsored by Shire Human Genetic Therapies, provides home infusion services to patients across Canada with Fabry disease. The HomePATH (Patient Assisted Team Health) Program is a clinical case management program that confidentially and effectively manages all aspects of a Fabry patient's Replagal therapy and associated care.

Replagal is an enzyme replacement therapy that Fabry patients have been prescribed by their physician. The treatment consists of a 40-minute infusion every two weeks. Through our program, patients receive treatment in the privacy of their own homes, at a time that is convenient for them.

Each Fabry patient is assigned a clinical nurse manager who oversees the entire process. When we receive a new referral, our case manager contacts the patient to set up a time for their first infusion, assigns a specially trained nurse, arranges for delivery of infusion supplies and drug to the patient, provides updates to the prescribing physician and follows up regularly with the patient. Our nurses work with all Fabry patients to develop a schedule and care plan tailored to their personal needs.
