How Transitional Care in Northwest Houston Reduces Hospital Readmissions

Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care

When your loved one needs help making a successful return back to their own home after staying at the hospital, the transitional care providers from Visiting Angels┬« Houston Northwest are ready to help. We offer a comprehensive transitional care program called Ready-Set-Go Home. As part of this program, our caregiving team works to minimize care recipients' risk of being rehospitalized. 

By striving to ensure the best outcomes for seniors in our local community, we help them age in place for longer. Ready-Set-Go Home includes multiple forms of support for care recipients when they feel most vulnerable. From in-hospital help to essential home care services, these forms of care can play a crucial role in their recovery and ability to remain out of the hospital.

What Causes Readmissions?

A significant percentage of elderly adults who are beneficiaries of Medicare are rehospitalized soon after their discharge from the hospital. In fact, one out of five of these seniors return to the hospital within only 30 days. This can cause stress for them and their family members and take a toll on their overall well-being and their confidence about the future.

In many cases, the causes of readmission are rooted in the absence of external support at the senior's home. It is typical for seniors to feel more tired and weak than usual when they leave the hospital, and these factors can affect their ability to maintain their quality of life as well as their physical condition. When they start skipping meals, medication dosages, and disregarding the advice of their healthcare provider, they set themselves up to experience serious complications that require rehospitalization. 

How Our Transitional Care Program Helps Seniors in Northwest Houston

Ready-Set-Go Home gives seniors in Northwest Houston the full spectrum of support they may need as they are discharged from the hospital and recover at home. For example, this program includes assistance with discharge planning while the senior is still hospitalized. Then, this plan is put into action through in-home visits from our care professionals. Every step of the way, we coordinate with family caregivers to help promote care recipients' chances of a successful recovery and minimize their risk of readmission. 

All it takes is a quick call to our office to start learning more about transitional care. We'll set up a free consultation for you and your loved one in Northwest Houston, Greater Greenspoint, Oak Forest, Inwood Forest, Northgate Forest, Acres Homes, or a neighboring area. Call Visiting Angels Houston Northwest today!
