How Transitional Care in Myrtle Beach Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
Sometimes, seniors need a bit of help to make a successful return home after a stay at the hospital. With the support of a transitional care provider, elderly adults can minimize their risk of enduring complications that lead to repeat hospital visits. At Visiting Angels® Myrtle Beach, we realize how crucial it is for seniors to avoid rehospitalization. Our caregivers are ready to offer well-rounded, personalized support that gives seniors confidence about the road to recovery and helps their loved ones rest easy knowing they have assistance with the discharge process.
What Causes Readmissions for Seniors in Myrtle Beach?
The rates of rehospitalization are high among seniors. In fact, Medicare has indicated that almost 20% of beneficiaries are readmitted to the hospital in four or fewer weeks after their return home. It's clear seniors are particularly vulnerable during this time period and can benefit from a helping hand. Having support with their daily routines can prevent them from engaging in behaviors that may contribute to complications. For example, with reliable assistance, they can more accurately implement their doctors' orders, keep up with medication schedules, and eat properly.
How Our Transitional Care Program Can Help
With the knowledge that transitional care can provide many benefits for elderly adults, our local care agency in the Myrtle Beach area offers a comprehensive set of services called Ready-Set-Go Home. We've established this program based on a three-prong approach to transitional care that covers a wide range of needs.
Below, we've listed how these three prongs build upon each other for high-quality care before and after a hospital discharge:
- We start by helping seniors and their families in the hospital. Ready-Set-Go Home begins with guidance and assistance in the hospital setting. Our care coordinators are prepared to help families prepare for the discharge process and arrange care that suits their needs.
- We deliver personalized in-home care visits. The next step in our transitional care program is to help elderly adults with basic activities upon their return home in the weeks following their discharge.
- We offer ongoing support from our local office. Our local Myrtle Beach area office staff keep an eye on the progress of care recipients and help facilitate a seamless recovery.
