How Transitional Care in Forney Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready, Set, Go Home with Transitional Care
Ready, Set, Go Home, the program of transitional care services available through Visiting Angels® Forney, helps older individuals return home after being in the hospital. The comprehensive support offered by this program is delivered with the goal of helping our clients avoid a stressful readmission to the hospital.
We understand that a hospital stay can cause upheaval within your family and within the life of your loved one. With Ready, Set, Go Home, you can know that your loved one is benefiting from all the support they need to sidestep preventable issues that could lead to complications and a readmission.
Why Transitional Care Is So Important
Are you aware that nearly twenty percent of seniors on Medicare are readmitted to the hospital in four weeks or less of being discharged? The occurrence of hospital readmissions among elderly adults are astonishingly high, and you may wonder why this age group in particular seems to enter a cycle of discharge and readmission that is difficult to escape.
After seniors are discharged from the hospital, they often aren't ready to go about the daily routines needed to maintain their well-being and promote their recovery. Mobility issues and lingering symptoms can play a role in this scenario, as can exhaustion from being in the hospital. Without a helping hand, they may struggle to follow the instructions of their healthcare providers, eat healthy meals, and keep track of their medications.
Transitional care can make all the difference for seniors in this situation. When they have a committed care provider assisting them with looking after themselves, they can lower their risk of a complication. Our caregivers in the Forney area help out in a myriad of ways, from cooking meals to helping seniors bathe and use the restroom.
