After spending some time in a hospital, your loved one is surely looking forward to returning to the comfort of their home. However, in order to recover safely after surgery, they will need assistance on a daily basis. Since your parent will need constant in-home care, looking after them yourself can be exhausting.

Luckily, with the Ready-Set-Go Home program provided by Visiting Angels Rockford, your loved one can receive the level of care they need to recover safely at home and avoid hospital readmissions. Our home health care services are available in Rockford, Loves Park, Machesney Park, Belvidere, Rockton, Cherry Valley and the surrounding communities in Boone and Winnebago Counties in Illinois.

Home Health Care is Essential in Preventing Re-Admissions

There are so many reasons why hospital re-admissions happen. Some seniors do not follow their doctor’s instructions after returning home, some do not attend medical appointments, while others do not take their medications as prescribed. At Visiting Angels Rockford, we have adopted a three-prong approach that helps us keep our clients safe and away from the hospital.

Transitional care begins at the hospital – If your loved one has a scheduled surgery, do not hesitate to contact us. With the Ready-Set-Go Home program, transitional care begins in the hospital, not at home. We will learn about your loved one’s situation and coordinate with their discharge planner. Your family will receive our discharge planning guide called “Ready-Set-Go Home” that will help you understand why readmissions happen and how to avoid them.

Transitional care continues at the client’s home – Our caregivers are trained to deliver high-quality home health care services. By helping your loved one with daily tasks and keeping an eye on them, our care professionals will help your parent recover safely at home. We will also ensure that your parent is following doctor’s orders and provide valuable insight into any symptoms. With our transitional care services, we can address important issues on time and help your loved one avoid unnecessary readmission.

Transitional care support occurs at our office in Rockford – At our Rockford office. we will keep track of your loved one and their progress. Our staff members will coordinate care, arrange food or medication deliveries and provide important reminders.
