How Transitional Care in Audubon Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
With the Ready-Set-Go Home transitional care program, seniors in Audubon can count on having support as they recover from a hospital stay. The caregiving team at Visiting Angels® Audubon understands how crucial it can be for elderly adults to have a helping hand before, during, and after a hospital discharge. Through personalized services specifically intended to promote their well-being, seniors can look forward to a successful recovery and minimize the risk that they'll experience complications that could lead to a return to the hospital.
What Causes Hospital Readmissions for Seniors in Audubon?
In many cases, hospital readmissions among the elderly are preventable. What often causes these otherwise avoidable rehospitalizations is seniors' inability to properly take care of themselves in their fragile condition after an injury or illness. They may at first think they can handle bathing, preparing meals, and remembering medication schedules on their own, only to realize they are much too exhausted to complete even these basic tasks without help. The result is often a deterioration in condition resulting in a necessary hospital readmission.
How Visiting Angels Audubon Helps
Our local care agency utilizes a three-prong transitional care approach to cover all the bases and lay the foundation for a swift recovery. First, we help seniors and their families prepare for the discharge through in-hospital support. In addition to providing clients with our detailed and informative Ready-Set-Go Home guide, we also remind families to ask their loved ones' physicians important questions about what to expect from the days and weeks ahead. Using this information, we then create a comprehensive care plan for seniors in collaboration with their family caregivers.
The next step in transitional care is to provide support for seniors upon their arrival home in Audubon. These services can take the form of help with mobility and personal care tasks, preparing meals, going grocery shopping or running to the pharmacy, and accompanying seniors to their doctors' appointments. All along, our office staff works behind the scenes to assist the care process and identify any high-risk clients who may require advanced care.
