A significant portion of the health care provided in this country has been shifted to the home care environment.
As a result, patients are discharged from the hospital earlier, with increased needs for highly skilled care.
Much of the daily, hands-on care patients require, is provided by family members or care givers and supported by periodic visits from health care professionals.
Home nutrition support is one of the many « technical » therapies that is routinely administered at home.
To ensure the success of home nutrition support one must identify appropriate candidates, develop a nutritional plan of care agreeable to the patient/care giver, design a prescription appropriate for the home setting, and properly train the patient/care giver.
