Abstract
This book is a practical reference for any clinician who has struggled to care for an older adult in a home setting. The volume is written by experts in the field who describe fundamental principles and clinical approaches of geriatric home-based care and their application to specific diseases and conditions, including delirium, incontinence, falls, and chronic pain and disability. The book also details house calls for special populations, from the developmentally disabled to those afflicted with neurologic or psychiatric diseases. The volume explores house calls within the context of the US healthcare system. Geriatric Home-Based Medical Care: Principles and Practice is a valuable resource for geriatricians, geriatric nurses, primary care physicians, social workers, public health officials, and all medical professions who need tools to provide timely, compassionate, and high-quality care for their older adult patients.
