In the United States, home health is currently at a crossroad. Home health has a rich history of providing high-quality care to patients’ homes. However, it remains unclear how home health care will serve older Americans and people with disabilities in the future. As the world's older population continues to grow at an unprecedented rate, home health care services are growing in relevance, as most seniors choose to age in place and remain independent. As healthcare costs continue to rise, healthcare professionals and government agencies are also looking for ways to make care more affordable.
