Tirupathi wrote an excellent article on providing health care at home versus a hospital. Below is an excerpt from his article.
Elder patients like their homes
It’s a well accepted fact that Patients get much better in a healing environment at home than a hospital. When we want to feel loved and cared, we prefer being at home. It feels safe, it is secure and is also the refuge of last resort. Recent trends indicate Home Health Care is fast becoming the next frontier for Healthcare professionals.
With better outcomes and lowered cost, it’s no small wonder that increasingly policy makers in Governments across the world prefer Active ageing at home in their citizenry. WHO believes Active ageing allows people to realize their potential for physical, social, and mental well-being throughout the life course.
