How Transitional Care in Leominster Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
Do you have concerns about your loved one's ability to avoid a repeat hospital stay after being discharged? Getting started with transitional care from Visiting Angels® Leominster can help ease your worries. Our Ready-Set-Go Home program is uniquely designed to support seniors through the discharge process and help them recover at home. Our compassionate care professionals promote seniors' quality of life and ensure they have the assistance required to implement their doctors' directives.
What Causes Readmissions in Leominster?
Readmissions often stem from avoidable complications. When older individuals are exhausted and weak after a hospital stay, they don't always have the energy or wherewithal to look after themselves. This can result in them skipping important recovery instructions from their physicians and a decline in their overall well-being.
A lack of help at home may be an important factor underlying the almost 20% rate of rehospitalization among Medicare beneficiaries. Providing seniors with dedicated support both before and after they leave the hospital can help lower their risk of being readmitted soon after finally arriving home.
How Transitional Care Helps
As the Ready-Set-Go Home program has been developed for the specific purpose of helping seniors minimize the chances of returning to the hospital, you can have confidence your loved one is in safe hands. We've built this program to have three pillars of care, resulting in a comprehensive approach that promotes the overall well-being of care recipients and assists them with getting back to the life they cherish at home.
These three pillars of care are as follows:
- Help in the hospital setting. We strive to be the source of support families require as they navigate the planning process for their loved one's hospital discharge.
- Personalized support at home. Once seniors have undergone a hospital discharge, they can expect to benefit from high-quality care delivered by compassionate and capable professionals in the comfort of home.
- Assistance from our office in Leominster. Our care coordinators are ready to assist with the logistics of transitional care. For example, we can ensure medication reminders are given at the right time and medication or food deliveries are precisely coordinated.
