How Transitional Care in Edina Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
When a loved one is in the hospital, you may be solely concentrated on helping them make it back home. However, once they return home, they will likely also require some help. That's what the Ready-Set-Go Home transitional care program from Visiting Angels® Edina is all about. By delivering high-quality care for seniors before they are discharged from the hospital and as they recover at home, we help minimize their risk of experiencing complications and returning to the hospital.
What Causes Readmissions Among Seniors?
Readmission rates among seniors are incredibly high, with almost 20% of Medicare beneficiaries making a return to the hospital in a month or less following their discharge. A wide range of factors can contribute to complications that require rehospitalization, and the absence of in-home support is one of them.
Many elderly adults find that it is challenging to get back into the groove of daily life after a hospital stay. They often realize they require more support than they ever expected, especially with basic activities of daily living and implementing instructions given to them by their doctors. Without dedicated assistance focused on promoting their well-being, they can experience a further decline that results in a readmission to the hospital.
How Our Transitional Care Program Helps Seniors in Edina
Ready-Set-Go Home was developed with the understanding that seniors are particularly vulnerable in the first 30 days after a hospital stay. We have created a program that concentrates on paving the way to a successful recovery and preserving seniors' independence and quality of life by reducing the likelihood of rehospitalization.
Our transitional care services at Visiting Angels Edina include support with discharge preparation at the hospital. We give families a helping hand with planning for the senior's care and equip them with our resource-packed Ready-Set-Go Home discharge planning guide.
After the senior's customized care plan has been created, they can count on receiving personalized support when they arrive home. Our care providers are prepared to offer respectful assistance and high-quality support with activities of daily living and other challenges the senior may face in their recovery.
