How Transitional Care in Omaha Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
With care dedicated to helping seniors make a successful move back home after a hospital stay, your loved one can look forward to a smooth transition. Our transitional care program at Visiting Angels® Omaha, Ready-Set-Go Home, offers high-quality care for elderly adults who are expected to be discharged from the hospital. When your loved one has one of our care providers assisting them with everything from discharge planning to daily tasks at home, you can also gain peace of mind about their ultimate recovery.
What Causes Readmissions?
We've developed an entire program for transitional care because rehospitalization is such a common occurrence among older adults. Almost 20% of seniors who are Medicare beneficiaries are readmitted to the hospital within the first thirty days of arriving home. This cycle is stressful for elderly adults, disruptive to their normal routines, and can minimize their chances of making a full recovery.
One of the reasons readmissions happen so frequently is that in many cases, seniors go through a functional decline after they are hospitalized. This leaves them unable to do the things that once came naturally to them, whether that's cooking meals, bathing, or remembering their medication schedules. When these tasks feel overwhelming, it is more likely seniors will skip them and suffer the negative consequences to their health.
How Our Transitional Care Program Helps Seniors in Omaha
Ready-Set-Go Home helps reduce hospital readmissions and promote the best outcomes for our care recipients. This program offers older individuals essential home care services after their hospitalization as well as well-rounded support while they are still in the hospital. The program also has benefits for family caregivers and concerned family members. If you are unsure of where to start when it comes to coordinating your loved one's post-hospital care, we will be there to guide you with the decisions you're facing.
Our transitional care program at Visiting Angels Omaha is structured around three prongs of care:
- Help with care coordination at the hospital.
- Personalized in-home care services.
- Logistical assistance from our office staff in Omaha.
