Reducing Hospital Readmissions Through a Home Health Aide in Mobile, AL
Through the Ready – Set – Go Home program, one of our home health aides can help your loved one in Mobile, AL safely return home after being discharged from the hospital and reduce the likelihood of being readmitted
At Visiting Angels, our Ready – Set – Go Home program is designed to provide a sufficient level of support to promote faster recuperation and minimize the risks of costly and dangerous readmission when senior loved ones are discharged from a hospital.
Unfortunately, the lack of an adequate support system is the main reason why many seniors do return to the hospital – as it is estimated that among seniors on Medicare, about 20 percent end up back in the hospital within a month after their initial discharge.
However, hospital re-admission is preventable. If your mom or dad is about to be discharged, the Ready – Set – Go Home program can provide them with a skilled home health aide that can assist with therapy and medication reminders, prepare healthy meals, offer transportation and accompaniment to therapies and appointments and make sure doctor’s orders and important recovery protocols are followed at all times.
