Preventing Hospital Readmission Through At-Home Senior Care from Visiting Angels Annapolis
A recent survey shows that 20 percent of discharged senior patients end up getting readmitted to the hospital within 30 days after their readmission. Hospital readmission is a big problem because it reduces the recovery rates of patients. It is important to keep in mind that most hospital readmissions are preventable and can be avoided by just following doctors’ directives. This is why it is so crucial that you do what it takes to prevent your loved ones from becoming readmitted in the hospital. To reduce the risk of hospital readmission, however, you need to look after your loved ones 24/7, especially during the first few days after discharge.
Fortunately, Visiting Angels Annapolis offers quality transitional at-home senior care services in Millersville, Annapolis, Pasadena, Glen Burnie, Severna Park, Arnold and surrounding communities in Northern Anne Arundel County, MD, through the Ready-Set-Go Home Program. Our experienced and compassionate caregivers help reduce hospital readmissions and keep seniors safe after being discharged from the hospital. Our services are customized for each client that we handle thus ensuring that your loved one receives care that is tailored to their needs so they can recover in their own home.
What's Included in the Ready-Set-Go Home Program?
There are many home care agencies in Anne Arundel County, but Visiting Angels Annapolis can provide you with highly trained caregivers that specialize in transitional at-home senior care. Our caregivers can implement our Ready-Set-Go Home program designed to help senior clients have a successful transition at home after being discharged from the hospital. The program implements different approaches to reduce the risk of seniors from being hospitalized aside from the usual essential personal home care services that they provide.
Our caregivers are trained not only to provide your loved ones with the assistance that they need, but they can already provide care prior to the discharge. While your loved one is still in the hospital, our caregivers can give support services such as taking notes of the doctors’ directives and ensuring that they are followed. They are also trained to spot any changes in the physical and cognitive well-being of your loved one so that you can be alerted. They can also arrange to coordinate appointments, medication and equipment.
Once your loved one returns home, our caregivers can begin providing at-home senior care services that focus on helping your loved one recover. From preparing healthy meals to helping them get in and out of bed, we will assist your loved one and make recovery so much easier and reduce the likelihood of being readmitted to the hospital. We will also keep in contact with your family if we notice any changes to their health or overall well-being.
