Ready-Set-Go Home: Preventing Hospital Readmission Through At-Home Healthcare from Visiting Angels Jackson
Reducing Hospital Readmissions: Ready, Set, Go Home
Visiting Angels offers the program "Ready, Set, Go Home," a transitional care program created to offer clients a way to have a successful return home after being hospitalized; this at-home healthcare program is also used to avoid rehospitalization.
Statistics show that about 20% of Medicare seniors return to the hospital within 30 days of being discharged. Being hospitalized is stressful and overwhelming for senior adults and their families.
It is common for elderly seniors to functionally decline after being hospitalized, impairing their independence and quality of life. Completing the most basic of tasks can be exhausting and stressful.
Our team at Visiting Angels has dedicated their time and energy to reduce hospital readmissions through our Ready, Set, Go home at home healthcare program. We design his program to have the best outcomes, providing our clients with essential personal home care services following a hospitalization.
Our Discharge Guide to Prepare for Your Return Home
Even if our clients are in the hospital or rehab, they can ask the important questions outlined in our Ready, Set, Go Home discharge guide. This guide will ensure you are prepared to return home. Using this guide to record information discussed during discharge plans with health care providers, clients can identify areas that will need assistance and determine how Visiting Angels can help coordinate theirs at-home healthcare plan.
Our team will visit our senior clients in the hospital with a plan in place before they are discharged—this ensures peace of mind for the whole family. We use input from our clients and their loved ones, and healthcare providers to create their individualized care plan that meets their needs.
Seniors can use their Ready, Set, Go Home discharge guide to reference important information and notes from health care providers once they have returned home. They should also guide all follow-up appointments to keep a comprehensive record of directives and remind them of questions they need to ask health care providers.
