How Transitional Care in Pinole Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
Knowing a loved one is set to be discharged from the hospital can be a relief. However, when you also know that one in five Medicare beneficiaries are readmitted to the hospital shortly after discharge, you may worry about your loved one's future. The transitional care services offered by the compassionate caregivers at Visiting Angels® Pinole can help your loved one experience a smooth transition home as well as a successful recovery that allows them to remain there.
What Causes Readmissions in Pinole?
You may wonder why hospital readmission rates are so high among elderly adults. One thing to keep in mind is that seniors often feel particularly tired, weak, or even experience mental fog following a hospital stay during which their normal routine was disrupted. Without the level of strength and vigor they typically have at home, they may be unable to properly look after themselves. Skipping steps in their personal care routine, missing meals, and taking medications improperly can result in a decline in their health and complications that make a return to the hospital inevitable.
How Our Transitional Care Program Can Help
Our transitional care program has been designed with these concerns in mind. We've named this program Ready-Set-Go Home because it paves the way toward a comfortable recovery at home. As part of these preparations, we meet with seniors and their loved ones prior to the discharge. Our care coordinators work to gain a deeper understanding of the instructions the senior has received from their physicians, as well as the challenges they can expect to face during their recovery.
The next step in our transitional care program for the Pinole area consists of high-quality, personalized support in the senior's home. Each care recipient is matched with a capable caregiver who can help out with their daily routines and remind them to take medications and implement other directives from their physician. Caregivers can also transport seniors to appointments, cook healthy meals, and keep the home tidy.
Behind the scenes, we have our supportive office staff working to ensure all the logistics of caregiving are coordinated. Knowing your loved one has well-rounded assistance with their needs can help you rest easy and have confidence in their chances of recovering comfortably at home.
