The quality of long-term home health services is particularly difficult to study because of (a) the multidimensionality and chronicity of patients' needs, (b) the complexity of and the number of social and health-related services provided, (c) the isolation of care in individual homes, and (d) the lack of norms and standards on which to base judgments.
A study was undertaken of the quality of care received by two client groups receiving home- and community-based services, in which some of these difficulties were addressed.
