How Transitional Care in Bergen County Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
Ready-Set-Go Home is our program of essential transitional care services that help seniors in Bergen County recover from a hospital stay and regain their ability to live an independent lifestyle. At Visiting Angels® Ramsey, we understand when seniors are admitted to the hospital, they are at risk of entering a cycle of discharge and rehospitalization that can be stressful, costly, and exhausting. When you arrange our transitional care services for a loved one, you can help them get on their way to a successful recovery and avoid a potential hospital readmission.
What Causes Hospital Readmissions in Bergen County?
When seniors return home from the hospital, they are rarely ready to get back to their normal daily routine. In many cases, they feel vulnerable, exhausted, and lack the motivation to carefully follow their doctors’ instructions. This combination of factors makes them more susceptible to further injury or strain. When these individuals lack a helping hand and an extra pair of eyes and ears to monitor their condition, they often encounter complications and quickly end up back at the hospital.
How Our Ready-Set-Go Home Transitional Care Program Helps
Ready-Set-Go Home offers dedicated, personalized care from care professionals who understand the risks seniors face when they enter the hospital. This program doesn’t just start when seniors return home. It begins while they are still hospitalized to ensure care providers play a role in the discharge planning process.
We will coordinate with your family to help understand your loved one’s needs and capture important insights into their doctor’s discharge plan and recovery instructions. That way, our caregivers can be fully equipped with the information they need to help your loved one to their full potential.
After your loved one has finally made it home, they’ll know they can rely on their caregiver to assist them with tasks around the house, personal care routines, and more. Our caregivers offer emotional support, accompany seniors to follow-up appointments, and monitor their care recipients to promote a smooth recovery.
