Three-Prong Approach to Minimizing Hospital Readmissions with the Help of Our Senior Caregivers

Most preventable re-hospitalizations could be avoided by simply following doctors’ orders. However, during recovery from an illness or injury, seniors may find it increasingly difficult if not impossible to complete even the most basic daily tasks. That is why they need a strong support system while they are recovering.

Our caregivers provide essential personal care services in accordance with guidelines and recommendations provided by medical teams and in synchronicity with the care provided by family and friends.

The Ready-Set-Go Home program employs a three-prong approach for reducing hospital readmissions, including:

  • At the Hospital. Our program begins while your loved one is still in the hospital. Our Angel companions can visit your loved one at the hospital and provide support services, guide your family through the discharge process, and provide valuable information while planning for the discharge. Our Ready-Set-Go Home guide includes all the info you could possibly need on hospital discharges, from questions you should ask doctors and nurses to tips on minimizing the risks of hospital readmission.
  • At the Client’s Home. Once your loved one returns home, our senior caregivers will provide assistance and support to make sure your loved one enjoys maximum comfort during recovery. Our caregivers pay attention to any changes in your loved one’s health or behavior and help them follow proper recovery protocols. If you and your family members are acting as unpaid caregivers, our program can help you find a healthy balance between caregiving and your other responsibilities and prevent burnout.
  • At the Visiting Angels Office. From our office, our Angel companions will support your loved one’s caregivers and your family. We can provide medication and appointment reminders, accompany your parent or relative to appointments, and assist you with coordinating medication, food, and equipment deliveries.

If you would like to learn more about us, our services and our senior caregivers, please call our Gadsden, AL office today. We are happy to schedule your free in-home consultation and help your loved one reduce the risk of hospital readmissions.
