Follow-up at home has many advantages, including popularity among older people, their caregivers, and general practitioners; seeing first-hand home conditions of the older person, the older person is likely to feel more comfortable at home; the assessor can examine all the medications which may not be brought to the clinic; assess the person’s eating habits and availability of food; assess any potential fire hazards; assess the needs of the carer; prevent or facilitate subsequent unnecessary referral for occupational therapy assessment; avoid a frail older person with poor mobility and sensory impairment the discomfort of attending a clinic, especially if the person or their family have no access to transport; avoid the stigma of visiting the psychiatric hospital; and improve engagement and consultation rates by preventing nonattendance at outpatient clinics. Initial home assessments, when compared to those in outpatient clinics, have been shown to identify a greater number of new or comorbid problems.

Dear Dr. Mel, may I know more about the nature of CSO service in HK? I wonder who will help offenders to reintegrate into the community.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?
