Hospital readmission is a big problem among our elderly clients. A recent survey reveals that 20% of discharged seniors get readmitted within 30 days after being sent home. Unfortunately, readmission means having a lower chance of recovery for your loved one. This is the reason why preventing hospital readmission is really crucial.
Preventing hospital readmission means that you have to constantly look after your loved one so that they can successfully transition from the hospital to their home. But how can you care for your loved one if you don’t have time to look after them due to work or other family obligations? Visiting Angels Mid Maine elder care aides are here to step in.
Our elder care aides are trained to implement the Ready-Set-Go Home program that is designed for seniors to prevent hospital readmission. Our elder caregivers are skilled and trained to provide non-medical care following hospital discharge. Below are the types of services that we provide.
