Reducing Hospital Readmissions with at Home Care from Visiting Angels of West Atlanta, GA
20% of seniors with Medicare end up back in the hospital within a month of being sent home. If a senior is readmitted during this month-long period, they have a much lower chance of recovery. Visiting Angels of West Atlanta’s Ready-Set-Go Home program helps prevent hospital readmissions and smoothly transition into their regular life. Within this program, our team has developed a three-prong approach to give our clients the best chance of success.
Ready-Set-Go Home’s Three-Prong Approach
Research shows that preventable re-hospitalizations happen because clients don’t stick to their doctor’s orders. But, after a recent hospitalization, these orders can become difficult to stick to. That’s why our Visiting Angels are here to support our West Atlanta clients during this difficult time.
During our three-prong approach, we provide quality at home care that helps seniors stick to their doctor’s orders. Our specialized at home care takes into account any unique health and wellness needs that they may have.
- At the Hospital: A Visiting Angel will guide your loved one, and your surrounding family, through the discharge process. We will also provide a Ready-Set-Go Home guide that includes key information about having a successful hospital discharge, including important questions to ask doctors and nurses before you head back home.
- At the Client’s Home: Our caregivers know the common reasons why seniors skip follow-up appointments or medication doses. If your loved one exhibits those behaviors, our caregivers will step in to correct them. They will also keep a watchful eye for any changes to your loved one’s physical or cognitive well-being.
- At the Visiting Angels Office: Back at the office, our West Atlanta team will be available to support your family. We can accompany your loved one to appointments, coordinate medication deliveries, and more.
