Individuals with cognitive impairment arc at high risk for institutionalization; thus, they may benefit from the support provided by home health services. The authors studied a cohort of elderly persons admitted to a home health agency, after first assessing them for cognitive impairment. Comparisons were made between cognitively impaired and cognitively intact individuals. Significant differences in the volume and type of services used were found. Management issues for home health agencies are raised.
