To promote independent living in the home setting, the nurse must conduct a detailed assessment of physical, psychosocial, and financial needs. The nurse is the coordinator of care and is thus responsible for assisting in the development of a client-centered plan that includes support from family and community resources. Many older adults prefer to live at home for as long as possible. The challenge for the nurse is to facilitate independent living for the adult who is coping with chronic illness.
