Dementia patients are often cared in institutional setting leading to substantial economic burden for the public health sector and family caregivers. The home-based care by a community psychiatry team may be a useful method of treatment delivery. In-home care includes a wide range of services provided in the home, rather than in a hospital or care facility. It can allow a person with dementia to stay in his or her own home. It also can be of great assistance to caregivers. Not all in-home services are the same. Some in-home services provide non-medical help, such as assistance with daily living. Other in-home services involve medical care given by a licensed health professional, such as a nurse or physical therapist.
