How Transitional Care in Cedar Rapids Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
Ready-Set-Go Home is a transitional care program from Visiting Angels® Cedar Rapids that gives seniors the tools they need for a successful transition home after being hospitalized. This program takes a three-prong approach to reduce the risk of hospital readmission, a risk that is especially high among elderly adults the month after they’ve been discharged. Whether your loved one is based in Cedar Rapids, Fairfax, Iowa City, Mt. Vernon, Marion, Anamosa, or a nearby community, our transitional care program can assist him or her after hospitalization and increase the chances of a successful recovery.
Reducing Hospital Readmissions in Cedar Rapids
Most preventable readmissions to the hospital could be avoided simply by following the instructions of the doctor. However, this isn’t always easy for seniors after they’ve been hospitalized following a serious accident or due to illness. During this trying period of time, even the most basic tasks can be a challenge to complete. Extensive outside help can be of immense importance for elderly adults after a hospital discharge, providing them with the assistance that they need to follow doctors’ orders and promote the process of recovery.
How Transitional Care from Visiting Angels Cedar Rapids Helps
Here’s how our Ready-Set-Go Home transitional care program from Visiting Angels Cedar Rapids will help your loved one avoid hospital readmission:
- In-hospital care. We start care in the hospital, offering supportive services that set your loved one up for a successful transition back home. We’ll guide your loved one and involved family members through the discharge process and offer important planning tools like our “Ready-Set-Go Home” guide, which includes detailed information for reducing the risk of readmission.
- In-home care. Following your loved one’s discharge, our professional caregivers will deliver non-medical assistance to promote your loved one’s comfort and safety while also monitoring him or her for significant changes or risky behaviors.
- External support from our office. Our office will provide behind-the-scenes support, utilizing special tools and resources that identify high-risk care recipients and help coordinate important reminders and deliveries.
