Home visits

Medical services available from the comfort of your own home

What is home medical care (visiting medical treatment)?

Home visits are a system that allows people who have an illness or disability that makes it difficult for them to go to the hospital, or who prefer to stay in the comfort of their own home, to receive planned medical services (treatment) from the comfort of their own home, with a doctor visiting them on a regular basis.

The purpose of home visits is not only treatment, but also to prevent the risk of becoming bedridden or contracting pneumonia through guidance on daily life, and to avoid situations where hospitalization is necessary. Regular and planned visits are made to provide medical examinations, treatment, prescribe medicines, and provide consultations and guidance on medical care.

If you do not wish to be treated in a hospital and would like to spend your final moments at home, we will work with visiting nurses and care managers to help you spend your final moments at home.

Eligible people

  • People who have difficulty going to the hospital on their own.

  • Those receiving nursing care services.

  • Elderly people who need regular health care.

  • People with dementia or who are bedridden.

  • People with intractable neurological diseases such as Parkinson's disease or ALS.

  • People who are busy caring for their family members.

  • Those who want to spend their final moments at home.

*There may be cases where a doctor decides it is possible to provide home visits other than those listed above, so please feel free to consult us.

Steps for visiting medical treatment

If you would like to receive home visit care from our hospital, please contact us after consulting with the person in charge (care manager, current doctor or nurse, etc.). Please also include a letter addressed to our hospital from your current family doctor. We will do our best to accommodate your request, but we will determine whether home medical care is possible based on your illness, address, and other circumstances.

If you would like to know more about the services provided and how much they cost before applying, please feel free to contact us.

Once it is determined that home visits are possible, a date will be set for the first visit, at which point explanations about the home visit will be given to the patient, their family, and other relevant parties (facility staff, care managers, etc.), future plans will be decided, a contract for the home visit will be signed, and tests will be carried out.

Regular medical examination

The attending physician will be the patient's primary care physician and will be responsible for all of the patient's daily medical care.

A nurse will visit you regularly to provide medical care. We will set a day and time and generally visit you every week or every other week. The number and frequency of visits can be adjusted according to your condition and requests.
The medical services offered are the same as those offered at a regular hospital, and in addition to a full-body examination, we also carry out tests, injections, drips, treatments, prescriptions, etc.

Emergency response (24 hours a day, 365 days a year)

Unlike hospitalization, nursing homes and private homes do not have doctors on-site who can understand and assess the patient's symptoms. Therefore, for patients receiving home visits from our hospital, we respond 24 hours a day, 365 days a year with either telephone consultations (re-examination by telephone), emergency visiting nurses, or emergency doctor visits, and if necessary, we make arrangements for emergency transport, hospitalization at our hospital, or transfer to another hospital.

Individuals at home

If you are receiving treatment at home

First, please consult with our hospital through your care manager or visiting nurse. If you are not receiving nursing care services, please contact us directly yourself or your family.

If you are hospitalized

First, please consult through the medical cooperation or consultation room at the hospital where you are admitted. If there is no medical cooperation or consultation room, please consult through the care manager. If a care manager has not been decided, please contact us directly yourself or your family.

Those who live at home in a facility

We have established a medical system based on the perspective of what type of medical care is essential to ensure that patients stay healthy, safe, and comfortable within the facility.
We provide 24/7 support and are thoroughly familiar with the unique characteristics of home care facilities, with the goal of bringing smiles to the faces of patients and their families.

End-of-life care, terminal care, and palliative care

Spending your final moments at home means finishing your life in a familiar place, living a life peacefully, and showing that you have lived your life to the fullest. We provide this support day and night as a matter of course.

We respond appropriately to any situation and do our best to ensure that patients can spend their final moments without anxiety. Doctors with palliative care training and plenty of experience are available to manage the medical care of patients with intractable heart failure and terminal cancer. We can also provide home oxygen, home ventilators, and central venous drips without any problems, so please feel free to consult us.

The month of first consultation will be different from the above.

There will be additional charges for tests, procedures, telephone consultations, house calls, etc., but these will not exceed the monthly limit.

Since this is an outpatient prescription, you will need to pay for the medication separately (same as for outpatient visits).

Users of long-term care insurance will be required to pay a home care management guidance fee (approximately 600 yen per month).

There may be some out-of-pocket expenses for items or procedures that are not covered by insurance.
