How Transitional Care in Chesapeake Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
Are you worried about your loved one's ability to make a successful return home after being in the hospital for so long? Perhaps you are anxious they will experience complications that require them to make a repeat hospital visit. If you know how important it is for your loved one to maintain their independence, you may be concerned that disruptions in their recovery could ultimately reduce their ability to live independently in the future. Transitional care services from Visiting Angels® Chesapeake can address these issues and ensure your loved one has high-quality support with both their discharge and their recovery.
What Causes Readmissions?
It's quite common for elderly adults to experience some sort of functional decline after being in the hospital. This could stem from their normal sleep routines being disrupted or could be the effects of the illness or injury they are recovering from. In either case, seniors are often unable to manage their own needs immediately after a hospital stay. Without help at home, they may feel it is necessary to skip important steps in their recovery that are particularly challenging to complete on their own.
This situation causes many rehospitalizations and could explain why hospital readmission among seniors are so high. To get a clearer picture of this number, it's key to look at statistics provided by Medicare. Reports show that close to 20% of elderly adults are rehospitalized in 30 or fewer days after returning home, showing the severity of the problem.
How Our Transitional Care Program Helps Seniors in Chesapeake
Transitional care can help keep your loved one from becoming part of this statistic. We've built a comprehensive transitional care program called Ready-Set-Go Home specifically to help elderly adults who are undergoing a hospital discharge.
