Preventing Hospital Readmission with Senior Home Care Services in and Around Hot Springs, AR
Ready-Set-Go Home is a transitional care program for seniors at Visiting Angels of Hot Springs to help seniors in Hot Springs, Hot Springs Village, Fountain Lake, and surrounding Arkansas communities make a successful return home after hospitalization and to minimize the risk of readmission. Roughly 20 percent of seniors on Medicare are hospitalized again within 30 days of discharge. Hospitalizations and the recovery process after being discharged can be stressful for seniors. Fortunately, our senior home care services can make recovery simpler and stress-free while reducing the risk of being readmitted to the hospital.
How Our Senior Home Care Services Help Older Adults Recover at Home
After hospitalization, many older adults functionally decline which can impair independence and quality of life. What used to be simple daily tasks can become overwhelming and exhausting. To help with this, Visiting Angels of Hot Springs is committed to reducing hospital readmissions through our Ready-Set-Go Home program.
While in the hospital or rehab, patients can ask the crucial questions outlined in our Ready-Set-Go Home discharge guide for better preparation in returning home. Using the guide to record information discussed in discharge plans with health care providers, seniors can identify areas that will require assistance and determine who (family, friends, neighbors, or Visiting Angels) can help and coordinate their care at home.
Our caregivers will visit seniors in the hospital and plan before discharge to ensure peace of mind for the entire family. With the input from seniors, loved ones and healthcare providers, we individualize senior home care services to meet their specific needs.
When returning home, seniors can use the Ready-Set-Go Home discharge guide as a reference to important information and notes from health care providers as well as when follow-up appointments are, so caregivers can maintain a comprehensive record of directives and remind seniors of questions to ask health care providers.
Visiting Angels of Hot Springs is here to help with the transition from being discharged to recovery at home. Our caregivers are here to make sure your healing continues and lasts with the benefits of our senior home care services. We can help your loved one take care of their personal care needs, coordinate medication deliveries, providing meaningful companionship, and so much more.
