Why Readmissions Occur
A stay in the hospital can be exhausting, both mentally and physically. Without the right plan to ease your loved one's transition back home, they are likely headed back for another stretch in the hospital. Here are 4 major reasons why hospital readmissions occur:
- Difficult adjustments. When presented with a new illness or injury, many seniors struggle to make the appropriate adjustments on their own.
- Disrupted routine. It can be difficult for a lot of people to get a good sleep while in the hospital. So many seniors return home exhausted and mentally drained, leading to poor self-care.
- Memory issues. If your loved one struggles with any memory issues, it may be difficult for them to follow along with any medical advice, including medication schedules. We will provide medication reminders and other memory support to help them navigate this stressful time.
- Failure to follow up. For many ailments, missing a follow-up visit with their doctor can be costly. Seniors often struggle to keep up with appointments, especially when they are physically weakened by a recent hospital stay. It can really help to have someone around to provide safe transportation and guidance.
