How Transitional Care in Southern Indianapolis Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
The Ready-Set-Go Home transitional care program from Visiting Angels® Southern Indianapolis helps elderly adults transition from being in the hospital to living at home. Our care providers understand how crucial this transition is to the recovery process. We take pride in delivering the non-medical care and support older adults require to reduce their risk of a readmission and regain their independence at home.
What Causes Readmissions in Southern Indianapolis?
Nearly one in five elderly adults on Medicare are readmitted to the hospital within a month or less of being discharged. Many of these cases are considered to be preventable and stem from factors such as a lack of energy and motivation, social isolation, and inadequate support during the recovery process.
Following an illness or injury, seniors are especially vulnerable and have high incident rates of strain and injury. Without the help of a caregiver at home, they may struggle to remember their doctors' instructions or go about day-to-day routines such as bathing and cooking. These factors can significantly increase their risk of serious complications that could result in a repeat hospital stay.
How Our Transitional Program Helps Seniors in Southern Indianapolis
Our Ready-Set-Go Home program is based on a three-prong approach to transitional care. Our aim is to deliver customized support covering seniors' full range of needs prior to, during, and after their hospital discharge.
During the senior's hospital stay, we can provide care visits that help them prepare for their discharge. When their physician begins outlining a discharge plan, we can support family members as they collaborate during the planning process. We also give our care recipients our Ready-Set-Go Home discharge planning guide for additional resources and information during this time period.
After the care recipient has returned to their own home, we provide home care visits to assist them with their daily routines and the implementation of their doctors' instructions. Our professional caregiving team offers non-medical support that makes life at home more comfortable and secure for seniors in a fragile state. We also supervise care recipients and notify their loved ones of any signs or symptoms of potential issues.
Our office staff in Southern Indianapolis helps support seniors in their recovery by tracking their condition and keeping note of their risk factors. Our staff can even facilitate deliveries and coordinate care schedules.
