After being discharged from the hospital, seniors are at a high risk of readmission. This is usually because seniors can have difficulty following their doctor’s recommendations for recovering at home due to age-related issues and a lack of in-home support. For example, eating a healthy diet can be challenging for seniors who struggle with preparing their own meals due to mobility issues.
Having to go back to the hospital can cause seniors to lose their independence. About 20 percent of seniors on Medicare who are discharged end up back in the hospital within 30 days of being sent home. Many elderly adults who get readmitted have a lower chance of recovery, complicating their ability to live independently at home.

Through the Ready-Set-Go Home program, our caregivers provide much-needed support to seniors in Point Loma, Kensington, the College Area and surrounding neighborhoods in Downtown, Uptown, and Peninsula communities of San Diego from hospital to home. We focus on ensuring clients follow medical directives, safely return home and providing in-home supportive services to assist seniors with everyday tasks.
Our program offers a three-prong approach to transitional care:
- While your loved one is still hospitalized, our caregivers work with your family to offer guidance through the discharge process, so you know what to expect. We can provide questions to ask your loved one’s medical team and tips on preventing readmission.
- When your loved one returns home, we will provide in-home supportive services that will aid in their recovery. Our caregivers can assist with light housekeeping, meal preparation, running errands, providing medication reminders, and so much more. In addition, we will also act as a second pair of eyes and ears and closely monitor your loved one. Suppose we notice any changes in your loved one’s well-being or that they’re not following proper recovery protocols (such as skipping medication doses or not going to follow-up appointments). In that case, we will be sure to alert you.
- Our office also provides additional support for families and caregivers. We have the tools needed to identify clients at a high risk of being readmitted so we can work with families on how to proceed. Our office team can also provide medication and appointment reminders, coordinate medication and food deliveries, and more.
