Client Satisfaction With Service Coordinators’ Provision Of Home Based Long-Term Care Services
Home based long-term care; Satisfaction; Service coordinator
This descriptive study investigates the reliability and validity of the Service Coordinator Satisfaction Measure (SCSM) which was developed to measure client satisfaction with service coordination in a pilot home based long-term care (LTC) program. The SCSM measures the subdimensions of service delivery and service sufficiency, as well as overall satisfaction with service coordination. Reliability testing with a sample of 213 clients indicated that the SCSM had high internal consistency (Cronbach’s alpha = .86) and validity testing with the SCSM and a criterion measure also yielded significant positive correlations (r = .57, p < .01). Results showed that clients ranged between being unsure and satisfied with their service coordinator. Analysis of the subdimensions in the SCSM indicated clients were more satisfied with service delivery than they were with service sufficiency, suggesting that clients were somewhat ambiguous about assuming a greater role in managing their own home based LTC needs. © 2000, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
