How Transitional Care in Dearborn Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
With the support of the transitional care services offered by Visiting Angels® Dearborn, your loved one can enjoy high-quality assistance with their hospital discharge and at-home recovery. We are a local care agency with a mission to help seniors maintain their independence. Those who have endured a hospital stay often require a bit of help at home in the weeks after their discharge. Our Ready-Set-Go Home transitional care program is designed specifically for this purpose.
What Causes Readmissions Among Seniors?
Hospital readmission rates are particularly high among seniors in the first month following a hospital discharge. Numbers from Medicare show that almost 20% of beneficiaries return to the hospital within 30 days of finally making it home. Repeat hospitalizations can cause an upheaval in seniors' normal schedules and minimize their ability to finally get back to independent living.
A helping hand at home can make a huge difference in reducing readmission rates. Because elderly adults often feel exhausted after being in the hospital and may struggle with symptoms and mobility limitations, it can be tough for them to follow their doctors' orders without help. However, with the benefit of a dedicated care provider, these individuals can look forward to a greater chance of making a full recovery.
How Our Transitional Care Program Can Help Seniors in Dearborn
Ready-Set-Go Home is all about paving the way towards a positive experience of recovering at home. That's why we begin delivering care before the care recipient has even been discharged. Our care coordinators visit the senior in the hospital or rehabilitation facility and coordinate a comprehensive care plan with their loved ones. We also equip care recipients with our Ready-Set-Go Home discharge planning guide, which they can reference throughout the process of discharge and recovery.
Upon their arrival home, seniors will have the advantage of personalized assistance from one of our care providers. We can arrange services such as help with personal care routines, medication reminders, mobility support, and companionship to promote seniors' well-being as they recover. Along the way, our office will be available to guide families through this crucial window of time.
Helping a loved one through a hospital discharge is much easier with transitional care. Call Visiting Angels Dearborn today to request a free consultation for your loved one in Dearborn, Allen Park, Detroit, Redford, or a community in the surrounding areas.
