Ready-Set-Go Home: Helping Seniors in San Ramon, CA and Surrounding Areas Return Home from the Hospital

Learn how our home health aides reduce the likelihood of hospital readmission for seniors in San Ramon, Pleasanton, Walnut Creek, Orinda, Castro Valley and surrounding areas in Contra Costa and Central Alameda Counties through the Ready-Set-Go Home program

If your loved one has recently been discharged from the hospital, Visiting Angels San Ramon can help them return home and provide the care they need. Our Ready-Set-Go Home program offers in-home support for seniors who have been discharged in order to reduce the likelihood of readmission. With personalized one-on-one care from our dedicated home health aides, we can make the recovery process easier for your loved one and give you peace of mind.

The Importance of In-Home Care After Being Discharged

About 20 percent of recently discharged elderly patients who are on Medicare end up back in the hospital within 30 days of being sent home. Many of these readmissions can be avoided by following medical directives after being discharged. However, recovering from a serious injury or illness can make even some of the most basic tasks and recovery recommendations difficult without some assistance.

Reducing the rate of readmission is crucial when being discharged. Seniors face a lower chance of recovery if they are rehospitalized within 30 days of being discharged, which can negatively impact their quality of life. If you’re worried about your loved one’s recovery process, choose the Ready-Set-Go Home program from Visiting Angels San Ramon.

We are committed to providing essential personal home care services to help seniors in San Ramon and surrounding areas safely recover at home. Our caregivers will help your loved one transition home, provide any in-home assistance they need with day-to-day tasks and make sure they follow their doctor’s recommendations for recovery.

How Our Home Health Aides Help Seniors in San Ramon and Surrounding Areas

Through the Ready-Set-Go Home program, we use a three-prong approach to help seniors recover:

At the Hospital

While your loved one is hospitalized, our caregivers will coordinate with their medical team regarding their discharge. We will also discuss discharge strategies with your family and provide any support you need during this time. We want to make sure you get the information you need and understand what the discharge process includes.

At the Client’s Home

When your loved one returns home, our home health aides will provide proactive in-home care to help them with everyday tasks. We can provide medication reminders, prepare meals, run errands, provide transportation to medical appointments and more.

In addition, we will also monitor your loved one in case they miss any doses or skip follow-up appointments. We make sure to keep an open line of communication with the families we work with so you can be informed at all times.

At Our San Ramon Office

Our office staff support our clients and caregivers. We are equipped with the knowledge and tools needed to reduce readmissions and identify clients who are at a high risk of needing rehospitalization. We can also work with you to coordinate deliveries for medication, food and medical equipment.
