Home care services may benefit people who:
- Need additional assistance to live independently at home due to an illness or disability or because of advanced age;
- Have a chronic illness or injury and want to rest in the comfort of a home environment;
- Are able to be discharged from a hospital or nursing home but need additional care at home; and
- Require short-term assistance at home because of same-day or outpatient surgery or maternity-related incapacity.
Recent studies have shown that people improve and recover faster at home than in institutions. For instance, when chemotherapy is required for treatment of cancer, the smaller doses that can be administered at home cause fewer adverse reactions than massive doses delivered in hospital settings. Also, surveys consistently validate the fact that whenever people have a choice, they prefer home care.
