Reducing Hospital Readmission with At Home Caregivers in Largo, Upper Marlboro, MD, and the Surrounding Area
Visiting Angels' At Home Caregivers Excel at Reducing Hospital Readmission with Our Ready Set Go Home Program in Largo, Upper Marlboro, Fort Washington, and Nearby Cities in Prince George's County
Did you know that roughly 20% of seniors on Medicare who are discharged from the hospital end up right back in the emergency department within 30 days of being sent home? If they return to the hospital during this 30-day window, older adults have a much lower chance of recovery.
Luckily, with our Ready-Set-Go Home program, we are committed to ensuring the reduction of hospital readmission. Our skilled and experienced at home caregivers provide home care before, during, and after a senior’s discharge.
Our Three-Step Approach

After an illness or injury, it can be almost impossible to take care of themselves while home alone. Therefore, outside support is a must during this 30-day post-discharge period.
Here’s how we reduce readmission:
At the Hospital. Assistance begins while a senior is still in the hospital. Our companions provide supportive services for our clients and their family members.
At the Client's Home. Aid is given to our clients after their discharge, ensuring that your loved one is comfortable and safe during their recovery. Throughout that time, our at home caregivers take note of everything that happens in the home, reporting on any changes in your loved one’s cognitive or physical health. Our care providers also provide respite care to family members who need a break from caregiving.
At the Office. Behind the scenes, our office support staff is behind our clients, their family members, and our
