How Transitional Care in Covington Reduces Hospital Readmissions

Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care

Helping a loved one through a hospital stay, discharge, and recovery can be incredibly challenging. The stakes are high during this sensitive time, especially when patients are 65 or older. Having dedicated transitional care resources from a professional care agency like Visiting Angels® Covington can be a huge advantage.

Our transitional care program has been specifically developed to keep seniors safe and healthy at home, promote their recovery, and enable them to stay out of the hospital. We call this program Ready-Set-Go Home because it includes the comprehensive resources and services families may need when a loved one is set to be discharged from the hospital.

What Causes Readmissions in Covington?

There are several risk factors that can increase a senior's likelihood of being rehospitalized after discharge. These factors are quite complex and can be influenced depending on the senior's living situation as well as their health condition. Making certain your loved one has access to high-quality care can help prevent complications and lower their risk of being one of the nearly 20% of Medicare beneficiaries who are readmitted to the hospital within a month of discharge.

How Our Ready-Set-Go Home Transitional Care Program Helps

Our unique program provides personalized care and coordination during the discharge process and the transition from hospital to home. This program is based on a three-pronged approach and aims to reduce rehospitalizations and promote aging in place.

Here are the three stages of care included in this program:

  1. Care in the hospital setting. Families often need support when a loved one is hospitalized. Our care professionals can visit the hospital to discuss your loved one's discharge plan, provide helpful resources, and coordinate the upcoming transition.
  2. Care at the senior's home. Returning home can be a huge relief for seniors, but it can also be a challenge. Our caregivers make certain seniors have the forms of help they require for a smooth recovery and a positive post-hospital experience.
  3. Care from our office. Our local office in the Covington area is staffed with diligent individuals who care about your loved one's well-being and will monitor their progress.
