How Home Health Care Services from Visiting Angels Reduce Readmissions for Seniors in Carrollton, TX and Surrounding Areas

Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care

Many seniors benefit from having dedicated care immediately before and after a hospital discharge. Known as transitional care, this care type is available through the Ready-Set-Go Home program at Visiting Angels┬« Carrollton. Our unique program provides elderly adults with access to high-quality care and assistance with coordinating the discharge process. We take a customized approach to care that specifically aims to reduce rehospitalizations among elderly adults and facilitates their recovery at home.

What Causes Readmissions?

The causes of hospital readmissions are complex and quite varied. Each senior's case is unique and may be compounded by factors such as specific diagnoses, number of medications prescribed, and socioeconomic status. However, it's clear that one factor underlying many seniors' readmission to the hospital is a lack of reliable support while they recover at home.

Seniors who have recently undergone a hospital stay due to injury or illness simply may not be up to the task of looking after their own well-being. They may feel weak, tired, and vulnerable, which can affect their ability to complete tasks as simple as bathing, cooking, and remembering to take their medications. However, these very same tasks are essential to their recovery, and neglecting them could lead to complications and, eventually, a rehospitalization.

How Transitional Care Can Help Seniors in Carrollton

Ready-Set-Go Home doesn't start when seniors get home from the hospital. Instead, our care coordinators help prepare care recipients and their family members for the transition. We begin providing care in the hospital, assisting with discharge planning and incorporating essential feedback from the senior's physicians into the planning process.

Once the planning and discharge process is complete, we conduct home visits to manage the senior's needs and help facilitate their comfort and well-being as they recover. Our caregivers can help ensure seniors follow their doctors' instructions and can also offer essential social and emotional support that prevents seniors from feeling isolated and alone during this particularly vulnerable time in their lives.

While our caregivers provide care, our office staff assists with coordinating the care process and organizing any deliveries or reminders as needed. Thanks to this three-pronged approach to transitional care, we're able to help minimize care recipients' chances of returning to the hospital.
