Transitional Home Health Care in Leesburg
There has been shown that a significant amount of Medicare patients that are discharged from the hospital are readmitted and quickly. Studies also showed that one in five are rehospitalizations happen within a single month. This can be a worrying statistic since repeat visits to the hospital can decrease seniors’ chances of making a full recovery.
Luckily, most hospital readmissions are avoidable. The solution is simple: home health care and transitional care services. During the recovery period, seniors typically lack the energy, mobility, and mental money they had before their hospital stay. It can be difficult or overwhelming to complete tasks such as remembering medication schedules, preparing food, and bathing. When seniors are offered help and support with these tasks, they can reduce the risk of readmission.

Our program offers a three-step approach for providing care that will pave the path for efficient recovery and a brighter quality of life for our elderly adults who want to continue to live at home. Our program also lets the families rest assured that their loved one is in the best of hands and that they can have relief from the demanding schedule of caring for a loved one.
The first step is to visit our clients to help them create a plan for their upcoming discharge. We give our transitional home health care clients our Ready-Set-Go Home discharge planning guide; this guide gives them crucial information and resources. Then, we begin supporting our clients as they get back into the groove of their daily routine in their homes. Our caregivers give gentle reminders, direct physical assistance, supervision, and companionship to enable seniors to maintain their well-being and help avoid any readmissions.
