Visiting Angels' Elder Care Services Reduce Hospital Readmission in Gilford, NH and Neighboring Cities

Visiting Angels Provides Elder Care Services During the Whole Hospital Transition Process to At Home Care in Gilford, Laconia, Wolfeboro, Moultonborough, and Surrounding Areas

Did you know that within 30 days of a medical discharge, about 20% of elderly patients on Medicare end up back in the hospital? What's even more problematic is that should your loved one return to the hospital within this time-frame, they have a much harder time and a lower chance of recovery.

We have created a specialized transitional care program we call the Ready-Set-Go Home Service. The main idea of this unique program is to assure a successful transition and reintegration of your senior loved one into the home after a hospitalization.

We pair your senior parent or loved one with elder care services after a hospital discharge to reduce the risk of readmission, which is a significant risk for seniors in the 24 months after a hospital stay. These elder care services are part of a three-tier approach.

At the Hospital

Our program begins in the hospital during your loved one’s stay. With our reliable, respectful support staff, an aide is available whenever you need them at the hospital, to assist both the patient and their family. Aside from physical support, Visiting Angels of Gilford caregivers can also guide patients and family through the discharge process, providing suggestions on home care planning and other valuable information. We provide a guide that you can use to provide additional support for your loved one. If you are looking for tips on reducing hospital admissions risks, questions you can ask nurses and doctors, and detailed information on the discharge process, this guide can help you.

At the Client's Home

After your loved one is discharged from the hospital, our caregivers will ensure your loved one is safe and adequately cared for by providing skilled, essential personal aide. Also, you can count on us to keep a close watch on what's going on at home. Cognitive and physical changes are monitored so that any problems coming up can be stopped in their tracks.

At Our Office

Along with in-hospital and in-home support, you'll also get assistance from the Visiting Angels of Gilford office. With the use of customized tools, our offices keep track of your loved one's progress and are actually able to spot the signs of a high-risk patient that may end up readmitted to the hospital. Additionally, our care providers can assist with elder care services: coordinating food, equipment, and medication deliveries. They're also right there when you need them, helping out with doctor's appointments and medication reminders.
