How Transitional Care in Panama City Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
For transitional care services designed specifically for elderly adults who need help with their hospital discharge and recovery, choose our Ready-Set-Go Home program in Panama City. Our community-oriented care agency is acutely aware of the importance of aging in place. The point of our transitional care services is to help seniors age in place for longer and avoid a preventable series of hospital readmissions.
At Visiting Angels® Emerald Coast, we want to give families the support they need during what is typically a very overwhelming experience. If your loved one is in the hospital, don't hesitate to reach out for help from our care coordinators and start planning for their discharge.
What Causes Readmissions in Panama City?
One of the reasons transitional care is so important is that seniors have an especially high risk of being readmitted to the hospital. Almost a full 20% of elderly adults on Medicare wind up rehospitalized within merely four weeks of their discharge. Taking early action to prevent the complications that cause readmission is key.
These complications often arise when seniors have trouble with their daily routines at home. Even if they did not find basic tasks to be challenging before their hospital stay, they may feel weak, tired, and mentally drained after the experience. In combination, these factors can cause them to skip essential steps in their recovery, which can have a major impact on their health.
How Our Transitional Care Program Helps Seniors
Ready-Set-Go Home is about so much more than moving seniors from one space to another. We have formulated this program with the specific forms of care older adults require as they prepare to be discharged and adjust to daily life at home.
For a brief overview of the three-pronged care approach included in this program, see below:
- First, we provide in-hospital support. Families who are uncertain about how to handle the discharge process can find the resources they need through our care experts.
- Second, we assist seniors at home. Once seniors return home, our care professionals work to ensure their comfort and well-being throughout the journey of recovery.
- Third, we offer help from our local office. Our local office can assist with many of the logistics of caregiving and monitors care recipients to track their progress.
