How Transitional Care from Visiting Angels of Harford & Cecil Counties Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
Comprehensive transitional care services that help older adults move from hospital to home are available in Abingdon through Visiting Angels® Harford & Cecil Counties. Our Ready-Set-Go Home program works to facilitate a seamless transition from hospital to home. In addition, this program was carefully designed to help decrease care recipients' risk of complications that could send them back to the hospital.
What Causes Hospital Readmissions in Abingdon?
Hospital readmissions are a significant risk for elderly adults, especially during the first 30 days after they have left the hospital. Almost one in five Medicare beneficiaries are rehospitalized only a month after their hospital stay. Unfortunately, those who are readmitted have a much lower chance of making a full recovery or regaining the level of independence they once enjoyed.
here are many variables to consider when pondering why the rate of hospital readmissions is so high for this age group. However, one of the most important things to keep in mind is that seniors commonly find it a challenge to manage on their own after a hospital stay. Feelings of exhaustion, decreased motivation, and both physical and cognitive decline can get in the way of them performing tasks that are essential to their health. A caregiver who is dedicated to helping them succeed in their recovery can make a huge difference in their outcome.
How Transitional Care Can Help
Ready-Set-Go Home is often the right choice for seniors who need a helping hand in their recovery and want to reduce their risk of being readmitted to the hospital. Our services are customized to suit each senior's unique risk factors and condition, as well as the directives given by their doctors and physicians.
Taking a three-prong approach to care, this program includes:
- Support with in-hospital preparations. We encourage proper discharge planning by guiding seniors and their families through the process.
- Assistance at home following the hospital stay. Our caregivers offer high-quality assistance with daily tasks that could be challenging for seniors during this crucial period.
- Monitoring from our local office. Our local office is staffed by care coordinators who can help with the recovery process by monitoring seniors' progress and coordinating care visits, deliveries, and reminders.
