Geriatric patient outcomes and costs in three settings: nursing home, foster family, and own home

Geriatric patient outcomes and costs in three settings: nursing home, foster family, and own home

Journal of the American Geriatrics Society 35(5): 387-397

Forty-nine matched triads of geriatric patients were compared after three months in their respective placement settings: nursing homes, geriatric foster homes, and own homes with supportive services. Compared to similarly disabled patients in nursing homes, patients in the two community settings made greater improvements in self-care skills and mobility, expressed greater well-being, had similar types and amounts of morbidity, and entailed lower costs. The results support the expansion of home and community-based services as alternatives to institutional care for a substantial number of geriatric patients.
