The Swiss French edition of "interRAI Home Care Suisse (interRAI HCSuisse) Instrument d’évaluation et manuel" is translated from the English "interRAI Home Care (HC) Assessment System." The interRAI HC is designed to be a user-friendly, reliable, person-centered system that informs and guides comprehensive planning of care and services for elderly and disabled persons in community-based settings around the world. It focuses on the person's functioning and quality of life by assessing needs, strengths, and preferences. It also facilitates referrals when appropriate. When used on multiple occasions, it provides the basis for an outcome-based assessment of the person's response to care or services. The interRAI HC Assessment System can be used to assess persons with chronic needs for care, as well as with post-acute care needs (e.g., after hospitalization or in a hospital-at-home situation).This book contains introductory material, an item-by-item guide to completing the assessment form, and the assessment form itself. The Swiss French Edition has been customized for Switzerland, and the French language used in this publication is native to Switzerland.
