Companion Care for Post Hospitalization in Fairfield, Brookfield, CT, and the Surrounding Area
Visiting Angels' Transitional In Home Companion Care Options Can Reduce Hospital Readmission in Fairfield, Brookfield, Trumbull, Greater Danbury, and Nearby Cities
Ready-Set-Go Home is a transitional care program to help seniors adjust to living at home after a hospital stay. According to the New England Journal of Medicine, nejm.org, roughly 20% of discharged patients return to the hospital within 30 days. Elderly adults have a lower chance of recovery if they are re-hospitalized during this window. Therefore, reducing hospital readmissions is essential to maximize health and minimize expenses. Visiting Angels of Fairfield home care companions are committed to reducing hospital readmissions through our Ready-Set-Go Home program.
Most Senior Patients Need Aftercare
Most patients can avoid going back to the hospital by following their doctor’s orders. But after a severe injury or illness, even the most basic tasks can be difficult or impossible for elderly adults. For many seniors to follow their doctor’s instructions, they will need extensive outside support.
Our Ready-Set-Go Home program gives seniors this much-needed support, increasing the odds of recovery and reducing hospital readmission risks. We provide home care aligned with your doctor’s instructions. Our professional home care services are customized for every client, ensuring a tailored approach to satisfy their specific needs.
