How Transitional Care in Redwood City Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
Are you looking forward to your loved one finally being discharged from the hospital? As you plan for their return home, you may wonder how you can help them successfully recover. Transitional care from Visiting Angels® Redwood City can reduce the risk of a readmission to the hospital and ensure your loved one has access to high-quality support throughout the recovery process. Our specialized transitional care program, known as Ready-Set-Go Home, includes a wide range of professional home care services as well as guidance before the senior goes through the discharge process.
Understanding Why Readmissions Occur
For many elderly adults, a full recovery simply isn't possible without outside support. Having spent time in the hospital due to a serious illness or injury, they may not have the strength, mobility, or energy to complete even the most basic of tasks. If your loved one is struggling to bathe, remember to take medications, or prepare nutritious meals, they may be at high risk of experiencing complications that could lead to a hospital readmission.
How Transitional Care From Visiting Angels Redwood City Helps
With Ready-Set-Go Home, you can have confidence there's a plan in place for your loved one's recovery. We'll begin by meeting with you and your loved one prior to their discharge to equip you with our custom discharge planning guide and help you gather information about what to expect from the recovery process. Next, we'll build a service plan targeting the areas in which your loved one is projected to need the most support.
Upon your loved one's return home, our caregivers will be ready to provide their care as planned. Whether they need help with walking, bathing, and grooming, or could benefit from reminders to take medications on time, our caregivers will be of assistance. Another benefit of in-home care during this time is that caregivers can act as an extra pair of eyes and ears during your loved one's recovery. They'll be able to monitor your loved one's well-being and ensure you're made aware of any significant changes or behaviors that could result in complications requiring rehospitalization.
