How Transitional Care in Casper Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
Is your loved one ready to return home after staying in the hospital for an extended stretch of time? Transitional care from Visiting Angels® Casper can help make certain they have the right amount of support to look forward to a comfortable recovery at home.
Our local care agency has in-depth insight into just how important it is for seniors to avoid hospital readmissions. Those who are frequently discharged from and readmitted to the hospital often have trouble regaining their independence and level of functionality. This can lower their quality of life and take away from their ability to live on their own at home.
What Causes Readmissions?
Elderly adults commonly go through a period of functional decline after being hospitalized. During this window of time, they are vulnerable to stress, strain, and exhaustion. Combined with a disrupted routine from their hospital stay, they may find that even the most basic tasks are too difficult for them to accomplish on their own.
Seniors who do not have the assistance they require to recover after a hospital stay all too often find they must return to the hospital. In fact, nearly one in five Medicare beneficiaries are rehospitalized within a thirty-day period of their discharge.
How Our Transitional Care Program Helps Seniors in Casper
We have committed ourselves to lowering the rate of hospital readmission through a carefully developed transitional care program known as Ready-Set-Go Home. This set of services is designed to promote the best possible outcomes for seniors and provide care recipients with essential home care services following their hospitalization.
While still at the hospital, care recipients can look forward to having support from our compassionate care coordinators. We always aim to initiate care before the discharge takes place. That way, we can guide families through the planning process and set the stage for a smooth recovery.
When seniors return home, they will be assisted by a professional care provider who is dedicated to meeting their needs. Care providers offer many different types of services which can be customized to seniors' preferences as well as the directives they've received from their doctors.
Should your loved one require assistance after a hospital stay, don't hesitate to get started with high-quality care that can give them an advantage in their recovery.
