Memorial Service for Dialysis & Kidney Center of North Brevard

The Dialysis & Kidney Center of North Brevard is holding its first annual memorial service on Thursday, May 24 in the Parrish Medical Center Conference Center at 951 N. Washington Ave., Titusville. Affiliated with Parrish Medical Center, the Dialysis & Kidney Center of North Brevard has provided in-center hemodialysis for the community for 18 years. The memorial service will be a special time for families and friends to share memories and visit with staff members as they honor those who have been served over the years. The memorial service begins at 7 p.m.

In addition to a brief inspirational message by PMC Chaplain Dr. Jerald Smith and special music, families may participate by sharing memorial tributes and photographs of their loved one in the memorial service program. Families are encouraged to contact the center office at 321-269-6270 for more details.

Invitations are being mailed to families served by the Dialysis & Kidney Center of North Brevard, however anyone who wishes to participate may do so by calling the center.

The Dialysis & Kidney Center of North Brevard provides in-center hemodialysis treatment and support services to persons with end stage renal (kidney) disease (ESRD). ESRD almost always comes after chronic kidney disease, of which the most common causes in the U.S. are diabetes and high blood pressure. The kidneys' main job is to remove toxins from the blood and maintain the balance of certain minerals and vitamins in the body. A buildup of waste products can lead to death. Hemodialysis removes blood from the body and sends it across a special filter to help remove harmful substances. The blood is then returned to the body.

The Dialysis & Kidney Center of North Brevard’s goal is to provide the patient quality of life; functional rehabilitation; disease management; emotional, social, and spiritual support; and continuation of life goals.
