Health Services Utilization and Research Commission
Record ID 32000008241
This report evaluates the effectiveness of two supportive services available to Saskatchewan seniors: preventive home care and senior social housing.
Authors' recommendations: Preventive home care - Seniors receiving preventive home care are more likely to die or lose their independence than seniors not receiving this service. - Seniors receiving high amounts of homemaking have a slightly reduced risk of death and loss of independence. - If preventive home care is of any benefit, it is likely among those seniors most at risk of death or loss of independence. Seniors housing - Residents of seniors housing have a lower risk of death or loss of independence than non-residents. - The positive effects of the seniors housing program were stronger in 1991 to 1993, the first two years of the study.
