How Transitional Care in Helena Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
Ready-Set-Go Home is the comprehensive program of transitional care services available for seniors in the local area through Visiting Angels® Helena. This program is designed to help elderly adults experience a successful return home after they've been in the hospital. Our caregivers work to minimize care recipients' risk of rehospitalization and enable them to get back into their normal rhythm at home while having high-quality, customized assistance.
What Causes Hospital Readmissions?
Because almost 20% of older adults on Medicare return to the hospital soon after being discharged, it is clear that elderly individuals could use a helping hand with the discharge process. Oftentimes, seniors undergo a period of functional decline following a hospital stay. This could be because their normal sleep routines have been disrupted in the hospital, they are experiencing side-effects of medications, or they are still suffering from lingering symptoms.
When elderly adults do not have comprehensive care during the discharge and recovery process, they are often at risk of rehospitalization. Ensuring your loved one has access to high-quality care before and after they are discharged from a medical facility can help lower their risk of being readmitted to the hospital.
How Our Transitional Care Program Helps Seniors in Helena
Transitional care can make a significant difference in seniors' experience of a hospital discharge. Our Ready-Set-Go Home transitional care program is specifically geared towards assisting elderly adults with leaving the hospital and getting on their way to the road to recovery.
As part of this program, we arrange for care recipients to have support in the hospital as they prepare to be discharged. We connect professional care coordinators with families, helping them throughout the discharge planning process. We also equip them with our Ready-Set-Go Home discharge planning guide, which they can refer to throughout their loved one's recovery.
To help seniors transition back to their normal lives at home, our caregivers offer a wide range of services. They can assist with personal care routines, take care of basic chores, cook meals, and accompany seniors to appointments. We design custom care plans to ensure each care recipient has the assistance they require to avoid a hospital readmission and successfully recover in the comfort of their own home.
With the help of a transitional care provider, your loved one can minimize their risk of returning to the hospital. Call Visiting Angels Helena to set up a free consultation in Helena, Great Falls, Butte, Cascade County, Jefferson County, Powell County, or a nearby community.
