Abstract

Caught up in the drop-dead pace of change in the world around us, it often appears that everything in life is uncertain; yet perhaps, in healthcare, nothing is actually changing. Nonetheless, the potential role of home care, which offers the flexibility for us to do different things and respond more effectively to emerging needs of individuals and families, has always been exciting and offers such tremendous promise. There is something quite magical about the relationship with clients in their own homes. Healthcare is all about relationships, and with today's technologies and other enablers that offer incredible opportunity to foster deeper, more meaningful relationships, the potential for home care in this new, evolving world is particularly exhilarating.
