Glossary Definition

Last Updated: 2009-10-19


The average length (in days) of all home care cases open in a two-year period. A home care client may have more than one case in a period. Each would be counted as a separate case with a separate length.

For residents with more than one home care case, days in home care were counted for each case open in the fiscal year. If the case was open prior to the start of the fiscal year, the case was assigned April 1st as the start date; and similarly, if the case was not closed prior to the end of the fiscal year, the case was assigned March 31st as the end date.
