AnnotationTwo independent studies examined a needs versus an agency perspective on home health care service needs within a primarily rural county in the US. Interviews with 299 older people aged 60 to 93 revealed that there were substantial needs for home health care services in 22 of 35 cases, and that the desire for services varied with residence within the county. Agency data suggested that service delivery was not based on population distribution, and that income, service accessibility, service visibility, inter-agency co-ordination and staff priorities were factors affecting quality and quantity of service.
