How Transitional Care in Clarkston Reduces Hospital Readmissions

When your parent, grandparent, or other loved one is hospitalized, you may be filled with worry. Transitional care delivered by our compassionate caregivers in Clarkston can help reduce your worry and give you confidence about your loved one's ability to recover when they are discharged from the hospital. With Visiting Angels® Clarkston as your partner in care, you'll have guidance with making decisions surrounding your loved one's discharge, preparing for their return home, and ensuring they have access to dedicated care while they get back into the rhythm of normal life.
What Causes Hospital Readmissions?
Many seniors end up being rehospitalized within a short period of their discharge. Medicare has even reported that among adults over the age of 65, nearly 20% are readmitted to the hospital only 30 days following discharge. This is often because seniors encounter complications that stem from their inability to maintain their physical well-being at home.
For example, when elderly adults are discharged from the hospital, they can feel tired and weak and be more susceptible to injury. As a result, they may skip important steps in their doctors' discharge instructions. From taking medications properly to drinking enough fluids and bathing on a regular schedule, these simple tasks can be challenging for seniors who do not have assistance with recovering at home.
Learn How Our Transitional Care Program Helps Seniors in Clarkston
Because our transitional care program helps set the stage for a successful recovery, we've named it Ready-Set-Go Home. Through Ready-Set-Go Home, your loved one will have comprehensive non-medical support with all of the activities they may struggle with directly after their hospital stay. However, our services aren't limited to in-home care. We also conduct in-hospital visits to support families with the discharge planning process and help guide them as they have crucial conversations with their loved one's doctors.
Our care coordinators also work diligently at our local care agency to track seniors' progress and facilitate reminders. By coordinating the care process behind the scenes, they can keep an eye on high-risk care recipients and equip caregivers with the support they need to deliver high-quality, personally tailored support.
