Summary People with chronic kidney disease are ageing and have increasing co-morbidities. The current delivery of renal replacement therapy, dialysis and transplantation, needs to adjust to changing patient needs. This paper proposes a potential future service delivery model featuring a dialysis residential care facility and a care coordination focus. The residential care facility would be composed of four levels of care; high, hostel, independent and outpatient. The paper argues that this model may result in decreased morbidity, improved patient quality of life and may prove cost effective. Patients' nutritional status, medication adherence and transport efficiency may be improved. We propose this model to stimulate further debate in order to meet the needs of current and future chronic kidney disease patients.
