At Visiting Angels Littleton, we have developed our Ready-Set-Go Home program that helps our clients recover at home after being discharged from a hospital. Through our in-home supportive services, your parent can receive assistance during the transition and support during their first weeks home.
After being discharged, about 20 percent of patients end up back in the hospital within a month. Seniors who are re-hospitalized have much lower chances of recovery, which is why it is very important to prevent hospital readmission. With our Ready-Set-Go Home program, our clients are able to receive the assistance they need during their recovery period in order to avoid any incident that would cause them to be readmitted.
Most of the readmissions could easily be avoided just by following the doctor’s orders. However, for seniors who are recovering after a serious injury or illness even the most basic tasks can present a challenge. In order to follow doctor’s orders, most seniors require extra help and in-home supportive services as they return home.
Our in-home supportive services are designed to increase the odds of a full or partial recovery and reducing readmission risks. We deliver in-home care according to instructions provided by the client’s doctors and family members. Rest assured that with Visiting Angels Littleton as your partner in senior care, your loved one will receive customized care tailored to their specific needs.
The Ready-Set-Go Home program uses a three-prong approach:
At the Hospital
Our Ready-Set-Go Home begins when your parent is still at the hospital. Our caregivers can visit them and provide support for family members. When their doctors start discussing a discharge, we can lead you through the whole process and help you with discharge planning. In our “Ready-Set-Go Home” guide you will find valuable information about hospital discharges, as well as a list of questions you can ask your parent’s health providers.
At the Client's Home
After your parent’s discharge, we will provide them with assistance and support and ensure their safety and comfort during recovery. Our caregivers will keep an eye on your loved one and notify you as soon as they notice any changes in your loved one’s physical or cognitive health. We will help your parent follow doctor’s orders and proper recovery protocols. If you are your loved one’s primary caregiver, our in-home supportive services can help you catch a break and avoid becoming overwhelmed.
