Comparison between home health care and hospital services in elder population: cost-effectiveness

The services available in the home for the elderly patients suffering from the injured or diseases are defined as Home Health Care (HHC). This service is more convenient and less expensive to the elder population. Most of the subjects who were>65 years are not supportive towards the hospital based services. However, in the hospital care, the complete information of the care taken towards the patients will be documented. Therefore, the main concept of this literature was to compare between HHC services with the hospital care services for the coziness in the elderly population. The elder population in Saudi Arabia has been increasing rapidly and there are no special, private or personal services. Only the hospital based services are provided for care taking in elder population. This review recommends the HHC services in the Saudi Arabia region in both the private and non-private sector (government/ public).
