Community Health Care is the medical, personal, and social care that a patient or client receives from others. It might be given in a wide variety of medical facilities or it can happen in the patient’s home. People receiving this care might only need it for a short time, or they may need help for a very long time. Patients, also called clients, are referred to a facility or in-home service after they receive primary treatment for their illness or injury. A care team works together to make sure the client’s needs are met by following the client’s care plan. Direct Support Professionals are an important part of the care team, as they normally have the most contact with each patient and client.
