Reveals why home care has become the preferred form of treatment for many patients and caregivers and analyzes the specific patient populations for which it is most appropriate.In addition to the obvious benefits to the patient--increased comfort and security, greater privacy and autonomy, more control of activities and decisions, greater confidentiality, reduced risk of catching nosocomial infection--the author's research bears out that home care can be less expensive for targeted patient populations. Balinsky argues that home care can be most cost effective for populations such as many technologically assisted pediatric, elderly, and AIDS patientsthe very patients who are the most costly to care for in an institutional setting are the ones who derive the greatest benefit and represent the largest savings when cared for at home.Using examples of successful models--shared aide, hospice and long term home health care--the author outlines suggestions on how to improve the cost effectiveness of home and community based care.
