OLIVEIRA, Stefanie Griebeler; KRUSE, Maria Henriqueta Luce; SARTOR, Silvia Francine  and  ECHEVARRIA-GUANILO, Maria Elena. Statements about home care in world stage: narrative review. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2015, vol.14, n.39, pp.360-374. ISSN 1695-6141.

It was aimed to know the definitions and implications of home care approached in scientific articles. It is a bibliographic research, a narrative review. The search was performed in the database National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health (PUBMED), in December of 2012. The descriptors Mesh Database used were: care services; patient care team; homebound persons and caregiver. It was found 2244 titles of publications. The process of inclusion and exclusion divided itself in two steps: the reading of the titles and abstracts to verify the approached theme, "home care", being selected 253 titles and abstracts. The second one was the filling of the frame of information, performed in the Microsoft Excel 2007 program, being concluded with 209 abstracts. In the analysis in a full form, 72 articles were selected to analysis of content and identification of statements. It was performed three enunciative categories: home care: what is it? For what is it used?; Home care: Fragilities and Potentialities; Familiar Caregiver: fatigue and isolation.

Keywords : home care services; homebound persons; caregivers.
