DaVita Offers Gift-Giving Guide For Dialysis Patients

DaVita®, a division of DaVita HealthCare Partners Inc. (NYSE: DVA) and a leading provider of kidney care services, is offering a holiday gift guide for dialysis patients this holiday season.

A variety of gift ideas that cater to the special needs of dialysis patients are available on the DaVita website. Whether someone dialyzes in-center or at home, DaVita’s Gift-Giving Guide for Dialysis is a great resource to find that one-of-a-kind gift that lets them know someone cares.

“Dialysis patients face many obstacles and can experience additional stress around the holiday season,” said DaVita Director of Social Work Services Duane Dunn. “Showing a loved one how much you care with a thoughtful gift can go a long way toward helping improve their overall quality of life.” provides gift ideas specific to various dialysis treatment options including in-center hemodialysis, in-center nocturnal hemodialysis, home hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. Regardless of their treatment choice, most patients can spend up to four hours dialyzing at least three times a week.

A blanket and small pillow can bring comfort to someone who dialyzes in a clinic. For those who dialyze at home, a new comfortable recliner or chair-side stand for their cycler might lift their spirits. Any dialysis patient will appreciate kidney-friendly food accessories like a slow cooker or a hot air popcorn popper. A journal can provide someone the opportunity to track food and drink intake or notes from a doctor’s visit.

These gift ideas and many more can be found in the Gift-Giving Guide for Dialysis on
