How Transitional Care in Missouri City Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
With our Ready-Set-Go Home transitional care program, we're helping make hospital discharges and recovery at home a bit easier for seniors and their families. At Visiting Angels® Missouri City, we realize that repeat hospital visits can be stressful for older adults and family caregivers alike. Not only can rehospitalization disrupt a senior's normal routine, but it can also minimize their chances of regaining their independence. Through the customizable services we offer for older adults in the Missouri City area, we help make it less likely care recipients will develop avoidable complications that result in rehospitalization.
What Causes Hospital Readmissions Among Seniors?
The first month following a hospital discharge is a crucial period, especially for older patients. Without adequate support at home, many seniors struggle to maintain good health directly after a hospital stay. In fact, Medicare has revealed that almost 20% of beneficiaries are rehospitalized within thirty days of their discharge.
Help at home can play a crucial role in keeping seniors out of the hospital for the long-term. That's why we offer customizable services delivered in the comfort of seniors' homes. However, we don't only offer care in the home setting. We also support elderly adults with the process of planning for a discharge and making the transition home. That's why we've named our transitional care program Ready-Set-Go Home.
How Our Transitional Care Program Helps Seniors in Missouri City
Ready-Set-Go Home is based on services delivered through a three-pronged caregiving approach. This holistic initiative enables us to better meet the needs seniors face when they are undergoing a hospital discharge. Moreover, it helps us lower their risk of rehospitalization.
When your loved one gets started with our transitional care services at Visiting Angels Missouri City, we'll take the following steps to assist them with making a successful transition home and a comfortable recovery:
- First, we will assist them at the hospital. We begin the Ready-Set-Go Home program in the hospital environment to make certain seniors have the support they require to fully prepare for their discharge.
- Next, we will visit their home to deliver care. We can build customized care plans according to each senior's unique care needs and the instructions their physicians have provided.
- Throughout the care process, our office staff will be available. As the third prong of care, our committed staff members help coordinate the various aspects of the caregiving process.
