Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Hand In Hand Home Health Care
by Hale-Hanes, Heidi A., M.S./M.P.H., California State University, Long Beach, 2016, 73; 10164122
Abstract (Summary)

The need for home health care is a growing need in the United States due to the shift of the “baby-boomers” into the post retirement years. However, there is a growing niche market within this aging population: the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered (LGBT) elders who have lived their adult lives “out of the closet” and who are facing difficulty receiving care which is compassionate and culturally sensitive at the same time. The mission of Hand-In-Hand Home Health Care is to provide exceptional home health care with a team of professionals that provide patient-centered care which is culturally sensitive and compassionate, achieved with employee training developed by SAGE (Services & Advocacy for GLBT Elders). Hand-In-Hand Home Health Care will achieve economic viability within the first year through optimal cash flow management with Axxess client software and the initial capital assistance with a 7a Small Business Loan.
