New study finds homebound, elderly patients missing out on in-home care
from Medical Xpress
The saying goes that "what is old is new again." Many elderly Americans are hoping that proves true. According to Forbes Magazine, house calls made up 40 percent of U.S doctors' patient encounters in the 1940s before that figure started to drop off in the 1960s. A new study involving the University of Virginia finds that older, frail Americans — up to 4 million of them — live at home, but are not getting the health care they need.
