Q1. Think for a while about cultural practices and how they affect health or illness in your own family (diabetes type 2 and hypertension).

Answer preview

Another barrier to home-based care is health and healthcare. Healthcare institutions do not provide adequate supporting infrastructure and training to the personnel managing home care. Medical supplies such as life-sustaining and assistive durable medical equipment are limited (Stuck et al., 2017). Also, insufficient staff resources are assigned to home-based care, which compels patients to care for themselves. It means that the client lacks quality care at home due to the unavailability of healthcare givers. As a result, the continuous health monitoring crucial for home-based care’s success is affected, which reduced the preference for care management services.
