How Transitional Care in El Dorado Hills Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready, Set, Go Home with Transitional Care
Seniors can look forward to a comfortable transition from hospital to home with our Ready, Set, Go Home transitional care program, available throughout the El Dorado Hills area. At Visiting Angels® Gold Country, we work to help older individuals live at home for longer. As hospital admissions can be incredibly disruptive to seniors' independence, we offer specialized care that reduces the chances of a repeat hospitalization following an initial hospital discharge.
Understanding the Importance of Transitional Care
Within a single month of being discharged from the hospital, almost a full 20% of Medicare beneficiaries are readmitted. This statistic shows just how important it is for seniors to have help at home following a hospital stay.
It's not unusual for elderly adults to feel a bit off after they return home from the hospital. As much as they want to get back into the swing of their former routine, they may be dealing with certain symptoms, have new instructions from their doctor to follow, or simply be exhausted. Without a helping hand, these circumstances can pave the way to otherwise preventable complications and an untimely rehospitalization.
How We Help Seniors in El Dorado Hills
Our approach to transitional care considers the unique needs of each of our care recipients. We meet with seniors and their families prior to the discharge date to discuss their physicians' instructions and the areas in which the seniors will most likely need assistance. We also give families our informative Ready, Set, Go Home discharge preparation guide to use as a resource throughout the upcoming days and weeks.
Once we have a plan in place for the senior's transitional care, they can feel more confident about their return home in the El Dorado Hills area. Their at-home caregiver can assist with many different daily activities, from bathing and getting dressed to doing laundry and preparing meals. Caregivers can also provide essential supervision, medication reminders, and accompaniment to follow-up appointments at the doctor's office. These crucial services can go a long way in helping seniors get back on their feet and continue living an independent lifestyle after a hospital stay.
