How Transitional Care in Kennesaw Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
A smooth transition from hospital to home is incredibly important to seniors' recovery after a hospital stay. Transitional care helps seniors make this move and reduces their likelihood of a return visit to the hospital. If your loved one in the Kennesaw area is hospitalized and will soon be discharged, the Ready-Set-Go Home transitional care program from Visiting Angels® Acworth offers the services they may need in the coming weeks.
What Causes Readmissions?
Rehospitalization rates are high among elderly adults, and the reasons for the prevalence of readmissions are varied. It's quite common for seniors to take time to regain their former level of independence after a hospital stay. As a result, they are particularly vulnerable to strain, injury, and other complications for a period of time after discharge. Providing them with a helping hand they can rely on throughout this process is often essential to a positive outcome.
How Ready-Set-Go Home Helps Seniors in Kennesaw
We understand the risks and challenges seniors face before they even leave the hospital, and we've created our Ready-Set-Go Home transitional care program to address these issues. With a professional caregiver by their side, your loved one can avoid readmissions related to preventable complications and enjoy a more comfortable, less worrisome road to recovery.
It all starts with in-hospital visits that assist both the senior and their family members with the discharge planning process. Our knowledgeable care coordinators provide helpful resources and encourage families to take note of important conversations with the senior's physicians. We also use this time to build a plan of transitional care services that cover all the needs the senior will likely encounter during their recovery.
The next phase of Ready-Set-Go Home involves in-home care. Our care providers from Visiting Angels Acworth are capable of delivering a wide range of services and can take on a number of responsibilities. For example, they can help seniors return to their normal sleeping and eating habits while following their doctors' instructions. They can also provide reminders to take medications and accompany seniors to follow-up appointments. Caregivers also provide often equally important companionship and emotional support during what can be a very trying period for seniors and their family members.
