How Our Elder Care Services Help Seniors in San Rafael, CA Recover at Home

Through the Ready-Set-Go Home program, Visiting Angels aims to help seniors in San Rafael, CA avoid hospital readmission by providing the elder care services they need to transition home after being discharged

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 rehospitalized 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 the San Rafael area achieve a successful transition back home after being released from the hospital. Throughout this time period, we’ll provide elder care services for your loved one and increase the chance that the transition back home is a smooth one. Our program introduces a three-prong approach that has been proven to prevent hospital readmissions for seniors.

Our Three-Prong Approach to Transitional Care

Through our Ready-Set-Go Home program, we want to increase the chance of a full or partial recovery after being released from the hospital. We’ve learned that the vast majority of hospital readmissions happen because an individual doesn’t follow doctor’s orders. But, following a serious injury or illness, it can be very hard for an individual to follow certain tasks, even if they are basic. They need outside help during this time, and Visiting Angels San Rafael can provide the elder care services they need to recover at home.

To reduce hospital readmissions, Visiting Angels has developed this three-prong approach for our Ready-Set-Go Home program:

  1. At the Hospital: Our caregivers can help you through 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.
  2. At the Client’s Home: To ensure your loved one’s safety, we provide skilled, non-medical support at their home. 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.
  3. At the Visiting Angels Office: At our offices, 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 can provide medication reminders, transportation to appointments and help you coordinate food and medication deliveries.
