How Transitional Care in Hattiesburg Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
If you're looking for a transitional care program that can make a positive difference in your loved one's return home from the hospital in Hattiesburg, Visiting Angels® Petal can help. We have an entire program based around minimizing seniors' chances of returning to the hospital. We call this program Ready-Set-Go Home because it prepares seniors for success in their recovery process at home.
What Causes Hospital Readmissions in Hattiesburg?
Almost one in five seniors on Medicare experience a rehospitalization in fewer than 30 days after they've been discharged. This can cause them severe stress, disrupt their routines, and minimize their independence. It can also lead their loved ones to worry about their ability to make a full recovery.
There are several reasons why a senior might be required to be readmitted to the hospital. For example, they could feel too tired or weak to do basic tasks on their own at home. If they do not have a helping hand with everyday activities, as well as implementing their doctors' orders, they may undergo a significant decline relatively quickly. This in turn can lead to complications and rehospitalization.
How Our Transitional Care Program Can Help
Ready-Set-Go Home has been designed with the understanding that seniors are at a vulnerable point when they are discharged from the hospital. Our transitional care services for the Hattiesburg area include support before this event occurs as well as after the senior has made it safely back home.
First, we meet with care recipients in the hospital and work with their families to create a plan for the discharge process. As part of the support we provide, we equip families with our Ready-Set-Go Home discharge planning guide, which includes important questions they should ask as their loved one nears their discharge date.
When seniors return home, they can utilize this guide for reference and to maintain a comprehensive record of their directives. They can also count on having a caregiver by their side as they go about their daily routines and get back into the groove of life at home. Our caregivers are prepared to assist with personal care, medication reminders, cooking and light housekeeping, mobility assistance, and more.
Help your loved one make a successful transition back home. Call Visiting Angels Petal today for a free transitional care consultation in Hattiesburg, Ellisville, Laurel, Meridian, Petal, or a nearby community.
