How Transitional Care in Minot Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
When what you desire most is to help your loved one make a successful transition home after a long stay at the hospital, getting started with transitional care can give you peace of mind. The transitional care program from Visiting Angels® Minot, which is called Ready-Set-Go Home, contains the wide range of supportive services seniors often need to return home safely and comfortably after a hospital stay. Our team of dedicated care providers understands the risks elderly adults face in this window of time, and they strive to promote seniors' well-being while giving their concerned family members a break from the stress of caregiving.
What Causes Hospital Readmissions?
There are a number of reasons why it is a good idea for seniors to have a professional transitional care provider by their side before and after a hospital discharge. One of the main reasons is that older adults have a higher risk of experiencing post-discharge complications that require them to return to the hospital rather than remaining at home as they'd prefer.
In fact, it has been shown that nearly 1 in 5 Medicare beneficiaries are rehospitalized after being discharged. This number reflects those who have to be readmitted to the hospital within only 30 days of first arriving home.
Because elderly adults often struggle to complete basic tasks on their own after a hospital stay, simply having a helping hand can actually be a major form of support. Rather than worrying that your loved one may not remember their medication schedules or safely be able to bathe and dress themselves, you can know they are being assisted with their daily routines by a care professional.
How Our Transitional Care Program Can Help Seniors in Minot
Ready-Set-Go Home includes a three-pronged approach to care that covers all the bases to provide comprehensive support for elderly adults. First, our care providers visit transitional care recipients and their loved ones in the hospital to talk through the discharge process. Then, after the senior has been successfully discharged, the care provider offers the personalized in-home services the senior needs to avoid a potential rehospitalization. Along the way, we provide family caregivers and their loved ones with guidance and important resources, such as our discharge planning guide.
