How Transitional Care in Hoboken Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care in Hoboken
At Visiting Angels® Hoboken, we offer a transitional care program called Ready-Set-Go Home. Specifically designed to help seniors make a successful transition home after a stay at the hospital, this program can provide your loved one with the post-hospital care they need to avoid complications. Our services are available for elderly adults throughout the Hoboken area, including Jersey City, Kearny, North Arlington, Secaucus, Union City, Weehawken, and neighboring communities.
Why Transitional Care in Hoboken? Causes of Hospital Readmissions
Hospital readmissions are a major risk for seniors during the 30 days following a hospital stay. In fact, around 20% of seniors on Medicare return to the hospital within one month of their discharge. Unfortunately, these individuals have a much lower rate of recovery if they are readmitted within this critical time period.
Several factors contribute to the need for a readmission, including failure to follow doctors’ orders or inability to complete basic tasks without outside support. That’s why post-hospital care is so important for minimizing the risks of complications after a hospital discharge.
How Transitional Care at Visiting Angels Hoboken Can Help
Our Ready-Set-Go Home program has been created to offer seniors the help they need to make a full or partial recovery after a hospital stay and reduce their risk of readmission. We offer comprehensive non-medical services that are customized to the specific needs of each care recipient as well as the preferences of their family caregivers and the medical directives of their doctors.
This program utilizes a three-prong approach to encourage a successful transition from hospital to home:
- Care at the hospital. We begin care during hospitalization to ensure proper discharge planning and help your loved one prepare for the journey of recovery.
- Care at home. Following discharge, our caregivers will deliver skilled assistance that promotes the safety and comfort of your loved one while monitoring their well-being and behavior.
- Behind-the-scenes care. Our professional staff will support the recovery process from our office using specialized tools that identify seniors who are at a high risk of re-hospitalization. We can also offer reminders and help coordinate deliveries of food, medications, and equipment.
