How Transitional Care in West Cincinnati Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
When a loved one is scheduled to be discharged from the hospital, you may wonder what you can do to help them smoothly transition back to life at home and avoid a return to the hospital in the near future. With the Ready-Set-Go Home transitional care program from Visiting Angels® West Cincinnati, you can ensure you're doing everything possible to help your loved one minimize their risk of a hospital readmission. Our services are delivered by professional care providers who are dedicated to helping seniors make a successful recovery and remain in the comfort and familiarity of home.
What Causes Hospital Readmissions in West Cincinnati?
The cycle of rehospitalization is prevalent among adults in the elderly age group for several reasons. One of the main factors in this phenomenon is that in many cases seniors are unable to care for themselves immediately upon their return home from the hospital. Without the strength, energy, or mobility to bathe themselves, cook healthy meals, or even remember to take mediations, their condition can deteriorate all too quickly. One of the best solutions to this problem is to provide seniors with a dedicated caregiver who can support them with basic activities and implementing their doctors' orders.
How Transitional Care from Visiting Angels West Cincinnati Helps
Our transitional care program was specifically designed to reduce the rate at which seniors are readmitted to the hospital following discharge. Currently, one out of five Medicare patients are readmitted to the hospital within 30 days of their discharge, a statistic that shows just how pervasive this issue is.
To promote a successful recovery from the get-go, we begin by caring for seniors while they are still in the hospital. This care includes equipping them with our Ready-Set-Go Home discharge planning guide and assisting their family with the process of preparing for the transition home.
Next, we deliver in-home care for seniors that is personalized to their individual needs. Following a hospital discharge, some care recipients require help with mobility and physically demanding tasks like bathing, while others need reminders, emotional support, and companionship.
