Ariel Sharon, the former Israeli prime minister, has been in a coma since 2006 and has been moved from a hospital to his home in southern Israel, BBC reported.
The 82-year-old suffered a series of strokes four years ago and has since been comatose with no change in his condition, Al-Jazeera reported.
The move is a result of a change in medical thinking that prefers to see long-term patients treated 'in the community' rather than in hospitals, hospital officials said.
Sharon is expected to be returned to a hospital for regular check-ups.
