This book is an orientation primer that examines the unique perspective of the home health care provider on how to best care for patients in their own surroundings and the variety of issues that can arise. In addition to discussing the history of home health care and defining roles from home health aide to physician, this book supports each role and incorporates it into the entire care management picture. It is the first home health care manual to take a multi-disciplinary look at actual events that can happen in the home. Anecdotes are offered from actual home care workers that focus on home care values that every professional needs. It outlines the client's rights and expectations as well as providing solutions if they are not met. Sensitivity issues are covered, such as dealing with ethnic differences, nontraditional families, and patients with AIDS. Case examples are given throughout to illustrate a plan of care. It addresses all caregivers and explains how to work as a team for the good of the patient.
