The Home Health Toolbox II, for use by physical therapy practitioners and researchers, is an impressive and comprehensive aggregation of assessments across multiple domains, ranging widely from physical capacity to cognitive functioning to social factors impacting health and functioning. A selection of these assessments can give a full picture of a patient’s status in the home setting and should play an important role in characterizing a patient’s problems and challenges, developing a treatment plan and following progress over time.

The value of this Toolbox is that its developers have carefully screened for instruments that will work in the home setting and describe their strengths, weaknesses, technical requirements and interpretation.

What is Home Health?

Home health care is the provision of skilled therapy services in the patient’s place of residence. While the majority of patients are senior citizens, there also are pediatric patients with developmental disabilities and other conditions, and individuals of all ages in between who need rehabilitation because of injury or other causes. Home care may actually be provided in the patient’s residence, the caregiver’s home, a hospital emergency room, skilled nursing facility, residential facility, group home, hospice, or elsewhere in the community.
