What are the advantages of house calls?

House calls present various advantages. For one, they make it easier for older adults to receive complete medical care in an environment they’re familiar with. What’s more, people who are immobile or homebound are less likely to schedule primary care. As a result, they’re more likely to experience worse health outcomes.

House calls bring health care to those who might not have access otherwise. It’s an easy and effective way to help seniors and their loved ones.
