How Transitional Care in Michiana Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
Did you know transitional care can help your loved one in Michiana recover after a hospital stay and avoid complications that could require a readmission? At Visiting Angels® South Bend, we strive to help seniors remain where they want to be for longer. By assisting them with their needs during a hospital discharge and as they recover, we can support them in making a successful transition home and staying out of the hospital. With the dedicated companionship and reliable helping hand of one of our caregivers, your loved one can comfortably and confidently age in place, even after hospitalization.
What Causes Hospital Readmissions?
The causes of rehospitalization are innumerable, but for many elderly adults, the cycle of being discharged and rehospitalized starts with not having the support they require at home. As it's common for seniors to feel exhausted while recovering from an illness or injury, they often skip important steps dictated by their doctor and fail to maintain their overall well-being. Without a pair of eyes, ears, and helping hands available to encourage them in their recovery and assist with day-to-day tasks, they commonly end up back at the hospital.
In fact, statistics from Medicare show that almost one in five seniors experience rehospitalization within the short thirty-day period following discharge. These statistics show just how crucial transitional care can be for this age group.
How Our Transitional Care Program Helps Seniors in Michiana
Are you ready to learn more about our transitional care program? Named Ready-Set-Go Home, this program is specifically designed to ensure elderly adults have access to the personalized services they require before, during, and after a hospital discharge. Care recipients who get started with this program receive care as soon as possible, even while they are still hospitalized. Our caregivers coordinate with families to set expectations and lay out a plan of care for the upcoming weeks or months.
Next, our caregivers provide in-home services that include the specific forms of support the senior may need as they work to regain their full recovery. Help with personal care routines, medication reminders, meal preparation, mobility support, and emotional support are all types of services that can be included as part of Ready-Set-Go Home.
