The Need for Home Care in Ashe County
Chronic illnesses affect many of our residents, and are among the leading causes of death in Ashe County. Cancer and heart disease are the most common causes of death here, followed by chronic lower respiratory diseases, high blood pressure, stroke, chronic liver disease, cerebrovascular disease, diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease.
While there is need for high-quality healthcare, access to services is a concern for many people. This is especially true for older adults in rural areas who may not have transportation to get to doctor appointments, pick up medications or access other services. About 25% of our population is over 65, and over 10% of those under 25 have a disability.
Home care can help Ashe County residents manage chronic conditions and disabilities at home.
