This research was designed to evaluate the quality of home care by examining family caregiver's satisfaction with home care services received.
The sample for this study were 110 families using home care from the Taipei Metropolitan Area.
Data were collected from interviews of the family members.
The degree of satisfaction with each attribute of services was measured using a Likert scale with 5 responses.
The degree of general satisfaction with home care was averaged across 19 attributes.
More than 91.0% of the family caregivers believed that the respect, consideration, concern for questions, and acceptance for suggestions from home care workers did not need any improvement.
In contrast, at least two-thirds of the family caregivers felt the speedy provision of services in an emergency and the degree of ease of contacting home care workers by telephone needed improvement.
The number of desired attributes that were received was a significant determinant of general satisfaction with home care services received.
Family caregivers who received at least 14 attributes tended to be more satisfied with home care services than the respondents who received fewer than 14 attributes of home care services.
Overall, subjects receiving home care services were satisfied.
The more desired attributes of home care received, the higher the satisfaction with home care.
