Management of Mental Health Conditions in Homebound Patients

Patients with mental health conditions present chronic distress and acute changes, which can be especially challenging when the patient is also homebound.  The home-based primary care (HBPC) team must be prepared to manage ongoing disorders and troubleshoot acute changes in behavioral symptoms. 

Having the ability to use varying assessments to identify behavioral disorders and create effective treatment plans is critical to providing optimal care and support.
