Comfort Care in Augusta, GA and the Surrounding Area

Receive Quality Comfort Care in Augusta with Ready-Set-Go Home:

At Visiting Angels of Augusta, we have designed a transitional care program to help seniors transition successfully from hospital care to home care. Known as the Ready-Set-Go Home program, it is a three-prong approach to reduce hospital readmission – a serious risk for elderly individuals in the 30 days after a hospital discharge.

Approximately 20% of seniors on Medicare who are discharged from the hospital return to the emergency room within 30 days. According to these numbers, older adults have a lower chance of recovery if they are re-hospitalized in the month following a discharge.

That is why at Visiting Angels, we believe reducing hospital readmission is of utmost importance. The Ready-Set-Go Home program was born to help by providing skilled, non-medical comfort care to seniors in the comfort of their own home following a discharge. Additionally, we also assist families by coordinating their loved one’s transition from hospital to home and supporting them throughout their recovery.
