How Transitional Care in Greenfield Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready, Set, Go Home with Transitional Care
Do you worry about your loved one's upcoming return home from the hospital? Whether you're concerned about them getting back into their normal routine or wondering how they will work around lingering symptoms or mobility limitations, transitional care can help. At Visiting Angels® Greenfield, make transitional care available to local seniors through our Ready, Set, Go Home program. With dedicated support from a professional care provider, elderly adults can minimize their risk of having to go back to the hospital with complications.
Causes of Hospital Readmissions and Needs for Transitional Care
There's a reason why we've created an entire senior care program around helping seniors through their hospital discharges. Almost one in five individuals in this age group are re-hospitalized in the month following their hospital stay. Hospitalizations, especially repeat hospitalizations, can be stressful both for older individuals and for the loved ones who worry about them. Lowering the risk of a return to the hospital can make a significant difference in a senior's quality of life.
It's common for elderly adults to go through a period of functional decline after they are hospitalized. This decline can hinder their autonomy as well as their well-being and can make the completion of basic tasks an overwhelming, exhausting, and even unsafe endeavor.
Transitional care from Visiting Angels Greenfield helps seniors avoid having to go through this period alone. Rather than trying to recover while also getting back into the groove of taking care of themselves, they can have the advantage of a care professional who is committed to improving their well-being.
About Our Ready, Set, Go Home Program in Greenfield
Ready, Set, Go Home is a program that follows seniors through the process of being discharged from the hospital as well as the process of recovering from their hospital stay. We start by providing a discharge guide for seniors while they are hospitalized, helping them prepare for their return home. Our care coordinators visit care recipients in the hospital and assist with putting a plan into place before the discharge occurs. That way, the senior can look forward to a smooth move home.
Once they've left the hospital, care recipients can benefit from home care services customized to their unique difficulties and daily challenges, as well as emotional support and companionship from a caregiver who truly cares.
