How Transitional Care in Lubbock Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
Ready-set-go home is a transitional care program offered to the seniors of Lubbock through Visiting Angels Lubbock. With this program, seniors' risks for readmissions can be minimized significantly. We have a team of care providers that assists seniors transitioning safely and comfortably back to their homes after being in the hospital. We work hard to support our clients while following doctors' orders in the comfort of the home with home health care services.
Why is Transitional Care Important?
Nearly one in five seniors on Medicare that are discharged from the hospital end up hospitalized again within 30 days of the initial discharge. This leads to stress for the patient and their loved ones; the chances of making a full recovery decrease immensely when re-hospitalized.
However, most readmissions can be avoided with home health care services. After being hospitalized, it is normal for seniors to experience a functional decline with basic tasks-- such as bathing to cooking, and remembering to take medications on time. Because of this, the recovery can be negatively impacted. Most seniors need a set of helping hands when trying to follow doctors' orders.
How Visiting Angels Lubbock Helps
Our team strives to provide the best home care assistance possible; we start delivering care while seniors are hospitalized or in rehabilitation. We prepare seniors and their family members with our Ready-Set-Go Home discharge planning guide. This guide can assist with the transition from hospital to home. It also provides essential questions to ask physicians and tips for coordinating care and identifying areas in which seniors will need the most help.
After relieving the hospital and returning home, a home care provider will assist with the recovery process. Our agency offers a wide range of tasks, from keeping up with medication schedules to preparing healthy meals. Your loved one can also receive assistance with bathing, dressing, and other physically demanding jobs can also be provided. Our team is there for every step in the recovery process for both the client and their family.
