How Transitional Care in Northeast Los Angeles Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
Ready-Set-Go Home is a comprehensive transitional care program available for seniors in Northeast Los Angeles. This program has been created to help elderly adults avoid hospital readmissions and make a successful recovery after a hospital stay. Our care providers at Visiting Angels® Northeast Los Angeles take a multi-step approach to caregiving to reduce seniors' risk of rehospitalization and provide their families with crucial guidance in the period directly before and after a hospital discharge.
Since nearly 1 in 5 discharged seniors on Medicare are rehospitalized within 30 days of being sent home, it's important to take every step possible to prevent complications that could require your loved one to return to the hospital. Our caregivers are equipped with the resources to support seniors during and after this one-month window and encourage a successful recovery.
What Causes Readmissions for Seniors in Northeast Los Angeles?
For many seniors, the need to be readmitted to the hospital stems from an inability to implement their physicians' instructions. As a result, their health can deteriorate, leading to complications that ultimately result in a hospital readmission.
Day-to-day routines can be challenging for seniors who feel weak or lack coordination and mobility. From taking medication on time to eating a nutritious diet and keeping up with appointments, these basic tasks are crucial to their health and their recovery. Support from a transitional care provider can thus be incredibly beneficial for vulnerable elderly adults who are not at their prime after a hospital stay.
How Transitional Care Can Help
Our Ready-Set-Go Home program is built around three crucial steps to prevent avoidable hospital readmissions from taking place:
- In-Hospital Preparations. One of our team members visits with the care recipient and the family members involved in their care to prepare for a smooth transition back home.
- Personalized In-Home Care. Next, our caregivers offer the full range of services the care recipient needs to remain safe, comfortable, and confident while getting back into the swing of things at home.
- Support From Our Local Office. The staff at our local office are always tracking seniors' progress and keeping an eye out for high-risk individuals.
