How Transitional Care in Norfolk Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready, Set, Go Home with Transitional Care
Do you have a loved one in the hospital who is looking forward to their eventual return home? With the help of a transitional care provider, they can more comfortably transition back to their independent lifestyle after a hospital stay. At Visiting Angels® Norfolk, NE, we are dedicated to helping elderly adults avoid hospital readmissions and stay in the comfort of familiar surroundings for as long as possible. Thanks to our Ready, Set, Go Home transitional care program, we are able to deliver the comprehensive support many elderly adults require as they face the discharge process and all the risks that come along with it.
Understanding the Importance of Transitional Care
You may feel a wave of relief wash over you when you realize that your loved one will soon be discharged from the hospital. However, it is important to also consider the challenges they will face throughout this transition. While the discharge date marks the end of a stressful hospital stay, it also represents the beginning of their recovery period at home.
Among Medicare beneficiaries, roughly 20% of patients who are discharged from the hospital are readmitted in thirty days or less following their return home. A repeat hospital visit can not only be stressful for your loved one and your family as a whole, but it can also lower their chances of making a full recovery and continuing to live the independent lifestyle they've grown used to.
To help minimize seniors' risk of complications that could make a hospital readmission necessary, we have built a detailed transitional care program called Ready, Set, Go Home. This program helps set the stage for a more positive experience of discharge and recovery and gives seniors and their families confidence as they look toward the future.
How Ready, Set, Go Home Helps Seniors in Norfolk
You can expect us to start supporting your loved one before they've even left the hospital. We prefer to be involved in the discharge planning process to help lay the foundation for the best possible outcomes. As we coordinated with you to build a care plan that covers all of your loved one's potential needs at home, we will also provide you with valuable resources such as our Ready, Set, Go Home discharge planning guide. Following your loved one's discharge and throughout their recovery at home, they will receive dedicated support from one of our professional care providers.
