How Transitional Care in Pewaukee Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
Are you concerned that when your parent, grandparent, or spouse returns home from the hospital, they will be unable to maintain their own well-being? With a transitional care provider by their side, they can look forward to a smoother recovery and reduce their risk of a hospital readmission. At Visiting Angels® Pewaukee, we offer a dedicated transitional care program called Ready-Set-Go Home for seniors who could benefit from a helping hand both prior to and following a hospital discharge.
What Causes Hospital Readmissions Among Seniors?
You're not alone in your concern about your loved one. Because nearly one in five Medicare beneficiaries are readmitted to the hospital in the short span of a month, families frequently worry about the risk of rehospitalization. However, they are often unaware of the factors that can lead to the need to return to the hospital.
While every case is different, seniors who do not have support at home with their recovery often find themselves in the situation of being unable to look after their own needs. Whether they are exhausted from their hospital stay or suffering from lingering systems, they may not have the capacity or mobility to do everyday activities. As a result, they can find it difficult to follow their doctors' directives and even complete routines that once felt like second nature. All too often, these circumstances lead to complications and rehospitalizations.
How Our Transitional Care Program Can Help Seniors in Pewaukee
When your loved one benefits from our transitional care program, they can look forward to having high-quality support throughout their discharge and recovery. We begin with assistance in the hospital, ensuring each care recipient has a plan in place for the discharge process. While helping out with preparations, we equip families with our Ready-Set-Go Home discharge planning guide, which includes important resources.
After the discharge has taken place, one of our caregivers will be there to help your loved one maintain their well-being at home. Your loved one's caregiver can assist with tasks like bathing and grooming as well as cooking and light cleaning. Other important services include medication reminders, transportation to appointments, and emotional support during this difficult time.
