Reducing Hospital Readmissions With Visiting Angels McKinney, TX At Home Caregivers
At Visiting Angels McKinney, we know that there are concerns when your loved one is in the hospital. You want to make sure he or she is doing fine now, but you also want to ensure that they will be fine down the road. One of the easiest ways to do this is to turn to at home caregivers.
We have developed a program called Ready-Set-Go-Home for this very reason, to make your loved one’s transition back home a success. Through our at home caregivers, your loved one should be well on the way to recovery with reduced risk of readmissions.
How Visiting Angels McKinney Helps
So how does our program work? It’s a three-stage approach that starts in the hospital and continues at home, providing a full range of services throughout the recovery process.
In The Hospital
Assistance starts during your loved one’s hospital stay, where we will help you and your family through the discharge process. We also offer a planning guide with information about our at home caregivers so you know what to expect. In order to save you time and energy, we can also prepare the home for the return of your loved one.
Of course, assistance will continue at home, where your loved one may struggle to do routine things that weren’t as difficult before. We can help with many of these things, including cleaning, cooking, getting dressed, bathing, and several others. Simply having an extra person around the house can also prevent falls or other accidents.
Our at home caregivers will remind your loved one about their appointment. If missed, the risk of readmission increases. Knowing the importance of attending these appointments, we’ll make sure that your loved one gets there on time.
At Visiting Angels McKinney
We can be of assistance by delivering equipment, food, and medication to your loved one’s house. We will also keep our eyes out for any sign that your loved one may be at risk of readmission. By regularly communicating with you, you will be updated on your loved one’s health status and be provided with helpful information.
Should you find yourself in a situation where your loved one is returning from a hospital stay and you are concerned about possible readmission, contact us.
