Understanding the Causes of Readmission for Better Transitional Care in Marietta

While there are numerous reasons for hospital readmissions, it’s important to acknowledge the most frequent causes in order to provide the best care possible. Here are some of the most common causes of readmission that our care services at Visiting Angels of Marietta seeks to address:

  • Difficulty dealing with a disease or illness in the home environment
  • Exhaustion and disruption of normal routines
  • Problems following through with specific discharge instructions
  • Not taking medication at the appropriate times or in the right dosages
  • Lack of follow-through with important follow-up appointments

How Senior Home Care Can Help Avoid Readmission

We aim to address these and other issues that occur after a hospital discharge. Our three-prong approach to senior home care provides the support that seniors need to ensure a successful transition back home:

  • We start in the hospital. We’ll meet with the client’s hospital discharge planner on request in order to offer the best care possible during this vital period. We also provide our clients in Marietta with a copy of our transitional care guide, “Ready-Set-Go Home.” This guide initiates seniors to transitional care prior to their discharge to ensure that they understand the specific steps of readmission prevention.
  • We offer monitoring and support at home. Our compassionate caregivers keep an eye on your loved one in order to watch for problems that could lead to readmissions, such as missing follow-up appointments or medication dosages.
  • We keep track of your loved one’s progress. The Visiting Angels Marietta staff uses specialized tools and resources to track the progress of clients who are at risk for readmission. This information helps us provide the best transitional care possible.
