d.health 2016 Panel
Chronic Care & Successful Aging

“In theory, almost everyone could stay at home. Short of surgery, virtually any form of health care -- kidney dialysis, physical therapy, wound care, intravenous medication – can be delivered in a private home... Home is so favored over any other alternative that staying put has become an aim in itself, regarded as the highest good, and families turn themselves inside out to make it possible… Figuring out who will do well at home is a complicated equation.” 

[Excerpt from the book When the Time Comes (2009) by Paula Span, author and columnist for The New York Times blog, the "New Old Age",]
