Transitional At Home Care in Pottstown, PA and the Surrounding Area

Visiting Angels of Pottstown Reduces Hospital Readmission Through Our At Home CareVisiting Angels provides transitional at home care to seniors in Pottstown, PA.

Designed to help seniors, Visiting Angels Ready-Set-Go Home program allows those who are discharged from the hospital to make a successful transition home. With a three-tiered approach to care, we reduce readmission to hospitals which is a serious risk for elderly clients in the weeks following a hospital discharge.

Did you know that roughly 20% of elderly Medicare patients who are discharged from a hospital often end up in the emergency department within 30 days of being sent home? If a senior is readmitted to the hospital within this 30-day window, they have a lower chance of recovery. In essence, that's why Visiting Angels created our Ready-Set-Go Home program because it is essential to reduce hospital readmission. With our skilled non medical at home care, we will support your loved one through their return home from the hospital and help you coordinate your loved one’s transition home.

Reducing Hospital Readmission with Our Three-Tiered Approach

The truth is, most cases of re-hospitalizations are preventable by following doctors’ orders. But sometimes, it's not easy for seniors to do so on their own. After an illness or a serious injury, basic tasks can be difficult to perform or even impossible. What is needed in these instances are extensive outside support and at home care.

We use the Ready-Set-Go Home program, a three-tiered approach to reduce hospital readmission:

At the Hospital: We begin the program while your loved one is still in the hospital, offering both parties, the senior and their family, any additional support they may require. Once it's time to consider a hospital discharge, our aides can give advice and suggest questions to ask the medical staff about re-injury prevention.

At the Client's Home: After your loved one is discharged, our skilled companions provide friendly at home care to ensure that your loved one is comfortable and safe during their recovery. Our care providers will also act as your loved one’s "eyes and ears", taking note of any issues and contacting family members if something worrisome presents itself. If you're a family caregiver, we can take over with our respite care services.

At the Visiting Angels Office: At the office, we also support your elder's recovery by providing medication and appointment reminders, coordinating assistance for medical appointments, and organize deliveries for medication, equipment, and food.
