abstract

  • Elderly home care patients had a variety of treatment preferences, ranging from active treatments, to religious or spiritual activities, to no treatment. Several factors were associated with a preference for active treatment, including treatment experience, physical impairment, race-ethnicity, and attitudes and beliefs. An understanding of patient preferences may help engage older depressed home care patients in treatment.
