Ready-Set-Go Home: Transitional Home Health Care from Visiting Angels San Fernando Valley Helps Prevent Hospital Readmissions for Seniors in Reseda and Surrounding Areas

The Ready-Set-Go Home program from Visiting Angels helps seniors in Reseda, North Hollywood, San Fernando and surrounding areas in California safely return home from the hospital

When your loved one has had an extended stay at a local hospital due to an illness or surgery, you will of course be thrilled and excited when a discharge date is announced. While seniors often very much look forward to returning home, it does entail certain risks.

At Visiting Angels San Fernando Valley, we want your loved one’s homecoming to be a successful one. Our Ready-Set-Go Home program is designed to provide your family with ample support and transitional home health care services in the first weeks of in-home recovery.

Eliminating the Risk of a Second Hospitalization

When preventing hospital readmissions, there are several risk factors you need to be aware of. We are here to help you identify and combat these risks.

The most common reasons why 1 in every 5 older adults returns to the hospital within a month after the initial discharge include:

  • Overall exhaustion caused by the hospital treatment or schedule. It can take a while for your parent to get back to their routine. Without adequate home health care and sufficient support, this can be difficult to achieve.
  • The inability to completely follow through with doctor’s discharge instructions. Failing to take prescribed medications, adhere to recuperation recommendations, stick to the suggested diet, or get to scheduled follow-ups can seriously undermine one’s chances for a successful recovery.
  • The inability to effectively manage an illness or a chronic condition while at the same time trying to recover from a prolonged hospital stay.
