How Transitional Care in Beaver County Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready, Set, Go Home with Transitional Care
The transition from hospital to home is often a difficult one for elderly adults. If you are concerned about your loved one's upcoming discharge from the hospital and want to make sure they have as much help as possible, look to the comprehensive transitional care services available from our local care agency in Beaver County.
Our transitional care program, Ready, Set, Go Home, is dedicated to boosting seniors' chances of remaining at home for the long run after a hospital stay. Because so many elderly adults are readmitted to the hospital soon after being discharged, this form of senior care can play a major role in helping seniors age in place. In fact, roughly 1 in 5 seniors on Medicare return to the hospital within a month of leaving. Our services can help lower this risk for your loved one and promote their comfort and well-being as they get on the road to recovery in the familiar environment of home.
Why Are Readmissions So Prevalent Among Seniors?
At Visiting Angels® Beaver, we understand your concern about your loved one's well-being. Many seniors face a difficult journey to recovery after a hospital stay and don't always have access to the support they need to avoid being rehospitalized.
There are several factors that can lead to this situation. For example, elderly adults often feel exhausted and weak after a hospital stay, whether from disruptions in their sleep cycle, medication side effects, or the symptoms of an illness. Many also struggle with mobility limitations after being in the hospital, which can hinder their ability to properly follow through on their doctors' instructions without the external support of a caregiver.
