Sažetak
Care of elderly people at the primary health care level is usually performed by primary health care physicians, community nurses and nurses from home care facilities. The purpose of care is to assist older people in the community and to ensure the quality of life in their own home through measures of primary, secondary and tertiary prevention. Community health care is a medical social activity that implements specific health care in order to promote and preserve the health of individuals, families and communities. The main goal of nursing in the community is to provide care to beneficiaries outside health facilities ; in their homes. It is particularly important to provide comprehensive care in the most vulnerable stages of life, such as illness, old age, infirmity, disability or poor social or economic condition. In order to solve various problems of elderly people regular cooperation of all the professionals that take care of an older person in their home is essential. Thus, in case of need for the implementation of health care, community nurse assesses the state of the user and determines the need for diagnostic and therapeutic procedures to be implemented in the user’s home. A nurse from the institution carries out approved home care services over approved time, lasting no more than 30 days. After 30 days, nurse reassesses the patient’s condition. This paper will show the duration of the continuous provision of home care services for patients. The objectives of the health care for the elderly people in their home are: to provide optimum conditions for better quality of life in their own home environment, implementation of measures and procedures for the preservation of health, implementation of measures and procedures aimed at disease control, implementation of measures aimed at identifying risk factors in the environment, integration of older users in the company and ensuring the quality of life, all of which will be presented in the paper.
