An Aging Population & Outpatient Care
Transcript of An Aging Population & Outpatient Care
Did You Know?
76.4 Million "Baby Boomers" made up almost 40% of the US population.
Baby Boomers (Continued)
Because so many baby boomers are growing older and developing age-related health problems, there is more of a demand for health care workers – of every type.
The Advantages of Home Health Care
A warm and loving home environment where they can be around family keeps the patient in a good mood. Family can take part in choosing caregivers. Fewer caregivers means better staff-to-Patient relationships. Home Health Care also reduces patients feelings of abandonment.
Home Health Care (Continued)
Patients can also feel more secure, and comfortable in their home. Children can build better relationships with elderly relatives easier in the home than in the hospital. Home care is often cheaper than nursing homes or hospitals.
Long Term Care
Long-term care is a range of services and supports you may need to meet your personal care needs. Most long-term care is not medical care, but rather assistance with the basic personal tasks of everyday life, sometimes called Activities of Daily Life.
ADL's (Activities of Daily Living)
- Using the Restroom
- Transferring to Different Areas
- Managing Money
- Taking Medication
- Prepping and Cleaning After Meals
- Clothing/Grocery Shopping
- Using the Phone/Computer
- Responding to Emergency Alerts
The Difference: Home Health Care vs. Long Term Care
In long term care, the nurses are there in the facility to be there for you 24/7. In Home Health Care, the nurses come to your home when you call them.
