Visiting Angels offer senior care services, like this program, because they can help minimize the risk of being hospitalized again.
The Importance of Transitional Care for Seniors in Conway and Nearby Areas
It has been shown that about 20 percent of seniors on Medicare are hospitalized again within 30 days of their initial discharge. Being hospitalized can be stressful for older adults and their families. Most seniors lose functionality after being hospitalized, leaving them impaired regarding their independence and quality of life. The most mundane and simple tasks typically become overwhelming and exhausting.
Visiting Angels of Conway has shown time and time again our commitment to reducing the chances of hospital readmissions for seniors with the use of our senior care services, such as our Ready-Set-Go Home program.
How the Ready-Set-Go Home Program Can Help
Our Ready-Set-Go Home program gives seniors and families 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.
Our caregivers visit 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 discharge guide to reference important information and notes from healthcare 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 healthcare providers about their senior care services.
