How Transitional Care in Riverview Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
Have you considered how transitional care can help your loved one get back to normal life after a lengthy hospital stay? At Visiting Angels® Riverview, we know these types of services can make a huge difference for seniors in their recovery process. That's why we've developed a specialized home care program specifically for those who are scheduled to be discharged from the hospital. We've named this program Ready-Set-Go Home as it helps families prepare for the discharge process and promotes seniors' ability to remain at home where they feel at ease.
What Causes Hospital Readmissions in Riverview?
If you are familiar with the statistic that 1 in 5 Medicare beneficiaries return to the hospital only 30 days after being discharged, you may worry about your loved one's risk of rehospitalization. Unfortunately, hospital readmissions are all too common among older adults. There are many reasons for this, but one of the main causes of readmissions is that older individuals often lack comprehensive support once they return home. In their vulnerable state, they may be unable to care for themselves properly or follow the instructions provided by their doctors.
How Transitional Care from Visiting Angels Riverview Helps
Our aim is to help families prepare for the senior's discharge, set expectations, and ensure elderly adults have personalized support upon their return home. To accomplish these goals, we begin by providing care during the senior's hospital stay. We meet with the care recipient and the family members involved in their care to discuss the upcoming transition and outline a plan of services that will meet the senior's needs. We also help families navigate important conversations with health care providers and equip them with our informative discharge planning guide.
When the care recipient finally returns home, they'll receive compassionate support from our caregivers. Depending on the care recipient's needs and current condition, our caregivers may help out by doing light household chores, preparing meals and snacks, reminding the senior about medication and fluid intake, and offering mobility support and bathing assistance.
