Our Discharge Guide to Prepare for Your Return Home
Our Ready, Set, Go program allows patients time to ask important questions while still in the hospital or rehab; our discharge guide allows for better preparation for returning home. When seniors use our guide, they can record any important information they receive from their medical professional and identify the area they need assistance with and who can provide the best care at home.
The Visiting Angels team visits our clients in the hospital, letting us obtain any information that can help us create a plan to be in place before discharge. With clients, healthcare providers, and loved one's input, we can individualize care to meet clients' unique needs with senior care services.
Once back in their home, seniors can use their Ready, Set, Go Home discharge guide to reference important information and notes from health care providers. Seniors should remember to bring this guide to any follow-up appointments so that they can continue to keep a comprehensive record of directives and remind them of questions to ask health care providers about their senior care services.
