Home health care is growing in importance as Americans seek alternatives to the costs and inconveniences of institutionalized care. Additional research is conducted daily in this field, and researchers need to know about the wealth of information currently available to assist them in their work. This valuable reference overviews the resources available on this topic, and also makes clear the areas needing further study. The authors have provided nearly 400 annotated entries in this bibliography, and have included books, journal articles, and government documents. The entries are grouped in topical chapters, and the descriptive annotations make clear to the reader whether a particular work merits a closer look. The bibliography begins with an informative introduction that discusses the rapid growth and complex changes of home health care, the economics of providing care, and those areas requiring further research. The introduction offers the specialist and non-specialist alike a brief but illuminating context for the entries that follow. The topical chapters of the bibliography treat works of a general nature, caregiving and caregivers, and the legal and managerial aspects of providing home health care. The author and subject indexes add to the utility of the work and make it an indispensable and convenient tool for all those interested in this important topic.
