BUDDHIST TZU CHI FOUNDATION NORTHWEST REGION

04/22/2018
2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Tzu Chi Foundation’s Northern California Chapter
San Jose 

北加州慈濟腎友會即將邁入了第十三個年頭。在過去十年多來, 腎友會有超過七十位腎友換腎, 但也有更多新的腎友加入。我們一面為腎臟病患者的急速增加而憂心, 卻也為愈來愈多的華裔同胞對自己的腎功能的注意與維護而感到安慰。腎友會的醫療團隊與志工始終如一,付出無所求地為所有參加的腎友們服務。當看到腎友們臉上露出的笑容與希望, 就是大家最好的回報。

北加州慈濟腎友會將於二○一八年四月二十二日星期日下午二點至五點,在聖荷西慈濟志業園區舉辦每兩月一次的腎友會聚會。本月的腎友會聚會邀請了服務洗腎中心多年的資深護理師楊素珍來為腎友們講解洗腎方式的選擇。

腎臟衰竭病患均依賴透析治療(俗稱洗腎)維生,唯一脫離洗腎生活的方法是腎臟移植;而腎臟移植需等待數年,因此順利的透析治療是非常重要的。透析治療之成效與生活品質繫於病患之配合度,病患之配合度又以其對透析治療的認知與態度息息相關。 目前透析的方式有在洗腎中心每星期三至四天的血液透析(俗稱血洗)、在家腹膜透析(俗稱腹洗)及在家血液透析三種,病患依個人身體狀況、居家環境、衛生習慣等選擇適合自己的洗腎方式,病患及家屬需要學習相關知識及技能,以便順利進行洗腎,如此就能過著正常快樂的生活。

慈濟基金會係國際性非營利慈善組織,腎友會不分宗教、性別,免費服務華裔朋友。所有志工本著慈悲喜捨的精神,以愛心做無所求的付出,歡迎有心的醫護人員、志工加入助人的行列,共同為身受病苦同胞服務。慈濟基金會北加州分會志業園區地址是2355 Oakland Rd., San Jose, CA 95131。如需更多資訊,請電(408) 457-6969查詢。
