Disability Care: Home- And Community-Based Services-
Adults with disabilities, especially those with severe disabilities, often require home- and co
mmunity-based services to optimize their health, functioning, and well-being while enabling them to live in their homes and participate in their communities.
Such services may include a variety of health services, such as home health care (e.g., skilled nursing care; occupational, physical, and speech therapies; dietary management; pharmacy), durable medical equipment, case management, personal care, caregiver and client training, and health promotion and disease prevention.
Home- and community-based services also include human services that support the daily living needs of adults and seniors with disabilities, such as personal care (e.g., dressing, bathing, toileting), transportation; home safety assessments, repairs, and modifications; information and referral services; and legal services.
Some hospitals, local areas, and states have initiatives to improve the integration of outpatient home- and community-based care for patients upon discharge from the hospital through an individualized treatment plan involving home visits, telehealth services, and online health information portals. In particular, nurses who visit with such individuals and their families at home after discharge have demonstrated their crucial role in helping families overcome problems with their family member’s medications, durable medical equipment, and other health care needs.
Use of home nursing services has also been associated with decreased hospital admissions for those with disabilities due to complex, chronic conditions.
Through home- and community-based services, families can access available home health care services that are delivered in what is ideally a comfortable and private environment for their loved one.
