Senior Care in Santa Cruz and Monterey Counties, CA
Visiting Angels provides transitional senior care for elderly adults in Santa Cruz, Scotts Valley, Marina and surrounding areas on the California Central Coast to help them stay safe and healthy at home and avoid being readmitted to the hospital
Hospital readmissions occur in 20 percent of admitted elderly patients in the United States. While most cases of hospital readmissions are preventable by following recommendations from healthcare providers and receiving assistance from professional senior caregivers, it is very possible for seniors who are still very weak to do their daily tasks to have to be readmitted for further care. Once they are readmitted to the hospital, they will require longer recovery and they are also at risk of getting an infection from the hospital. Thus, it is important that you ensure that your loved one is protected from anything that may lead to their hospital readmission.
If you need assistance with caring for a loved one after they've been discharged from the hospital, count on Visiting Angels Central Coast. Our Ready-Set-Go Home program provides elderly and disabled adults throughout Santa Cruz and Monterey Counties with the support they need to recover at home. Our goal is to reduce the likelihood of readmission and help seniors remain independent.
The Benefits of In-Home Care After Being Discharged from the Hospital
Aside from giving your loved one your undivided attention, you can also hire caregivers from Visiting Angels Central Coast to help provide your loved one with the support that they deserve. Here at Visiting Angels Central Coast, our caregivers are skilled and trained to implement the Ready-Set-Go Home Program. This transitional program ensures that your loved one will receive support and care from the hospital to their home so that their risk for hospital readmission is reduced.
Our senior care services begin right in the hospital prior to their discharge. Since the core of our Ready-Set-Go Home program is to ensure a safe transition, they have to ensure that the patients follow the directives of the doctors even during their hospital stay. Our caregivers can also provide support and educate the entire family on the proper care of their sick loved ones.
How Can the Ready-Set-Go Home Program Help My Loved One?
Once your loved one has already settled at home, our caregivers will provide quality in-home senior care. For instance, if your loved one doesn't have enough strength to get out of bed, our caregivers can provide assistance in feeding, bathing and other tasks. Our caregivers also serve as your eyes and ears in case there are changes in their vitals and cognition. In case these changes occur, they can alert you and the attending doctor of your loved one's well-being. They can also provide other support such as coordinate with a doctor’s appointment and accompany your loved one in case you are not available.
Securing your loved one after their hospital discharge is very important so that they can have a speedy recovery. Let our caregivers help you and your loved ones with a smooth transition from the hospital. This is the best gift that you can give them – the gift of recovery and healing.
