How Transitional Care in Carson City Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
A stay at the hospital can be stressful for seniors and their families alike. Unfortunately, nearly 20% of Medicare beneficiaries find themselves back at the hospital within a month of their discharge. Transitional care from Visiting Angels® Carson City can play a significant role in reducing your loved one's risk of becoming part of this statistic.
Our transitional care program, which we refer to as Ready-Set-Go Home, includes the wide range of services elderly adults can often benefit from before and after a hospital stay. Through compassionate care delivered by a dedicated care professional, care recipients can experience improvements in their well-being and lower their chances of being rehospitalized.
What Causes Readmissions Among Seniors in Carson City?
There's no single factor to point to as the main cause of hospital readmissions. However, it's clear that a lack of at-home support can significantly increase a senior's risk of a hospital readmission. Without help at home following their hospital stay, elderly adults can struggle to perform even the most basic tasks. Unfortunately, if they cannot complete essential activities of daily living, they will likely experience a further decline in their overall condition. These circumstances can also contribute to seniors failing to follow their doctors' instructions, which can inhibit their recovery.
How Our Transitional Care Program Can Help
The good news is your loved one doesn't have to go through their discharge and recovery alone. They can enjoy the compassionate companionship and high-quality support of our professional care providers through Ready-Set-Go Home.
This transitional care program focuses on laying a solid foundation for a successful recovery. That's why we always start by delivering care in the hospital setting, ensuring there is a plan in place for the senior's care following their discharge. This also enables seniors and their family members to have a better idea of what to expect in the weeks and months ahead.
Once the senior has been discharged from the hospital, we shift gears to deliver their personalized at-home care services. Care recipients can count on having help with a range of daily activities, from remembering to take medications to bathing, getting dressed, and preparing meals. Along the way, they can also look forward to the joy of building a meaningful relationship with their caregiver.
