Drawing on more than 20 years of experience, the editors of this book share their experiences in creating and managing home care programs for the frail aged. The authors have compiled information from diverse disciplines, including medicine, nursing, gerontology, and social services. They focus on the important clinical issues of functional ability, mental health, and disease and accident prevention; as well as critical programmatic issues including the most effective use of interdisciplinary teams (physician, nurse, social worker); paraprofessional and family supports; ethical issues and strategies about making choices in life support decisions; and methods for bringing students into this field of care.
