The Geriatric Patient on Home Care: A Study of the Needs and Need Fulfillment of Twenty Geriatric Patients on the Methodist Hospital Home Care Program
This research is a descriptive study of the geriatric' patient on the Home Care Program carried out at Methodist Hospital, a multi-disciplinary voluntary agency. The area of research is limited to the Medicare private patient, which is the largest population of patients on the program. The investigation was further restricted to the needs of the geriatric patient in order to evaluate the extent to which services available through the Methodist Hospital Home Care Program are able to fulfill these needs. Concentration on the needs of the geriatric patient and the manner in which these needs are being met while he is one home care was deemed worthy of research in order that services might be extended to service or ward Medicare patients, those who do not have private doctors, where needs might be found to be even greater. We did not limit our sturdy just to one service offered to the patients, such as nursing care, but we included all possible services.
