Abstract : Scheduling and routing careworkers is a perpetual challenge in the home health care (HHC) industry: it is essential to ensure a good quality of care under reasonable expenses. HHC consists in providing care to fragile people, therefore the pool of patients often changes: the schedule must be computed again, but continuity of care must be preserved to keep the patients satisfied. The working environment in the HHC field is remarkably stressful so it causes a high turnover rate in the staff, and has a strong impact on service quality. It is essential to provide schedules that satisty both patients and careworkers. In this paper, we address a weekly careworker replanning problem with continuity constraints. A decomposition approach is proposed to offer a careworker-friendly solution: First a path-generation algorithm creates admissible tours, and then a set partitioning model selects the tours.
