How Transitional Care in Salisbury Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
Ready-Set-Go Home is the name of the transitional care program available for seniors in the Salisbury area and delivered by Visiting Angels® Eastern Shore caregivers. The goal of this program is to help elderly adults make a successful transition back home after being hospitalized. In addition, we strive to minimize care recipients' risk of undergoing a readmission to the hospital.
What Causes Hospital Readmissions for Seniors in Salisbury?
Almost 20% of seniors who are Medicare beneficiaries are rehospitalized within a single month of being discharged. Hospitalizations can be stressful for older adults, and repeat hospitalizations are a reason for significant concern. As a result, it is crucial to take steps to prevent complications that can require a senior to return to the hospital.
Many elderly adults find that they experience a decline in their functionality after they are hospitalized. This decline can hinder their independence as well as their quality of life. When even the most basic activities feel exhausting, it can be difficult for the senior to maintain their well-being and avoid having their health deteriorate.
We have dedicated ourselves to minimizing hospital readmissions through our Ready-Set-Go Home transitional care program. This program has been carefully designed to promote the best outcomes for seniors and offer the essential care they often need to stay safe and healthy at home after being hospitalized.
How Our Transitional Care Program Can Help
Before seniors are discharged from the hospital or other medical facility, we provide them with our resource-packed Ready-Set-Go Home discharge guide. They can use this guide to prepare for their return home. We also help ensure families have a plan in place prior to the discharge to promote peace of mind. To create this plan, we utilize input from care recipients themselves as well as their loved ones and physicians. Then, we individualize their home care services to meet their needs and address their unique risks.
When seniors return home, they can enjoy having one of our compassionate caregivers by their side as they continue on the road to recovery. Our caregivers can offer a helping hand with remembering medication schedules, visiting the doctor's office for follow-up appointments, running errands, and more.
