Returning Home with Help from Visiting Angels
Through the Ready-Set-Go Home program, Visiting Angels helps seniors avoid hospital readmission by providing in-home care and support
Reducing hospital readmissions is a very important factor in ensuring a senior’s health. Throughout the seniors that are currently on Medicare, around 30 percent of discharged parents end up back in the hospital within 30 days of being released. If a senior is re-hospitalized during that 30 day period, they have a lesser chance of recovering from their injuries.
Our Ready-Set-Go Home program is designed to help seniors in Marin County achieve a successful transition back home after being released from the hospital. Throughout this time period, our caregivers provide in-home elder care services that support a safe transition home. Our program utilizes a three-prong approach that has been proven to prevent hospital readmissions for seniors.
Support During the Transition Back Home
The goal of our Ready-Set-Go Home program is to support a client's recovery plan. After illness, injury, or an extended hospital stay, a doctor will typically provide a long-term care plan that must be followed. It's common for adults, and seniors in particular, to need some assistance with implementing this recovery plan at home. This is where Visiting Angels can help.
To reduce hospital readmissions, Visiting Angels has utilizes this three-prong approach:
- At the Hospital: Our caregivers can help throughout the discharge process and provide valuable information on discharge planning. We also offer a “Ready-Set-Go Home” guide that gives detailed information on questions to ask doctors and nurses, hospital discharges in general and tips on reducing readmission risks.
- At the Client’s Home: To ensure your loved one’s safety, we provide essential personal home care services to aid with everyday tasks and the recovery process. We know the reasons why may seniors skip appointments and don’t follow doctor’s orders. We stop those behaviors in order to give a client the highest chance of recovery.
- At Our San Rafael Office: At our office, we will be working behind the scenes to provide your loved one with the support that they need to thrive. The staff at Visiting Angels San Rafael can provide medication reminders, transportation to appointments and help you coordinate food and medication deliveries.
