Dey, A.M., Division of Health Care Statistics Introduction Older persons, in general, prefer recovering from an illness in their own residence instead of in a nursing home (1). Despite their preferences, admission. Home health care has the potential to play an integral role in managing and treating many symptoms of these age-related health conditions.

In fact, the majority (70%) of home health care patients are 65 years of age and older (U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services, ). Home health care offers several advantages over hospital-based health care. HOMEHEALTHCARE Health Promotion and Disease Prevention in Home Care G H'ome care services are either episodic or intermit- tent, according to the individual client,s status.*.Dey 1reports that in and% of men and % of women receiving home care recovered or their conditions were stabilized, and they no longer needed home care.

As health care professionals adjust their expectations regarding anticipated survival rates for such disease processes, they become more willing to offer life-extending treatments to the elderly than in previous years.

Still, it remains possible to make technological improvements to home elder care. OBJECTIVE: Despite the growth of geriatric home health services, little is known about the mental health needs of geriatric patients seen in their authors report the distribution, correlates, and treatment status of DSM-IV major depression in a random sample of elderly patients receiving home health care for medical or surgical problems.

Other characteristics associated with homebound older adults consistent with other research studies included older age or those under 64 years and poorer health (i.e., more chronic conditions, more prescription drugs and more hospitalizations), 15, 16, 18, 19 Those under 64 years, who by definition are disabled to qualify for Medicare.

Patient, Home Health Stay, and Agency Characteristics. Estimated mean characteristics pertaining to the study population are shown in Table 2. On average, elderly home health patients were taking 11 medications, with 21% taking 15 or more. Slightly fewer than half had documented pain at the most recent home health visit.

In a pilot study of telemedicine in home health services (HHS) for elderly patients, we implemented and evaluated a telemedicine system with a kbs narrow-band approach to determine its effectiveness in providing quality services.

Fifty patients were selected for the study. Lack of help-seeking may not be a result of a lack of willingness to seek help but, instead, a result of a lack of knowledge about mental health services and the types of treatment available Education programs for elderly care recipients may be one way to overcome these barriers to mental health care,57 Other barriers include the stigma.that affect patient health and safety in this setting.

Methods: A convenience sample of 1, home health aides, attendants, and personal care workers completed a risk assessment survey.

Items addressed personal, patient, and home characteristics and health hazards. All activities had prior Institutional Review Board approval. Preliminary Results.Key Results. In38% (95% CI: 36–41) of elderly home health patients were taking at least one PIM. Polypharmacy was associated with an increased risk of PIM use; admission to home health care from a nursing home or other sub-acute facility (compared to admission from the community) and a payment source other than Medicare or Medicaid were associated with a decreased risk of PIM use.
