How Transitional Care in Santa Monica Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready, Set, Go Home with Transitional Care
After being in the hospital for a few days or weeks, your loved one may want nothing more than to return to the comfort of their own home. If your loved one's discharge date is approaching, it's time to start thinking about how you can ensure they are able to continue their recovery at home and avoid a repeat hospital visit. With the help of a transitional care provider and the detailed Ready, Set, Go Home program from Visiting Angels® Santa Monica, your loved one can have a smooth journey back to their normal routine at home.
Understanding the Importance of Transitional Care
When a senior encounters an illness or suffers an injury that requires a hospital stay, it can often be difficult for them to regain their previous level of independence. Seniors face a significant risk of repeat hospital visits after they are discharged. In fact, nearly one in five can expect to be rehospitalized within a month, according to statistics from Medicare beneficiaries. Because the transition from being in a medical facility to independent living at home can be quite abrupt for elderly adults, it is important to help ensure they have every form of support they need to successfully recover.
How Ready, Set, Go Home Helps Seniors in Santa Monica
Through Ready, Set, Go Home, our senior care agency takes a comprehensive approach to providing high-quality transitional care. As a result, we are able to promote the best outcomes for our care recipients, even those who feel particularly vulnerable after a long stay in the hospital.
We start coordinating with seniors and their family caregivers before the discharge date arrives, using this time to lay down a solid plan of home care for the care recipient. We also give families our detailed discharge planning guide, which is full of resources they can refer to as they navigate this new territory.
When elderly adults know they will have an extra pair of helping hands upon their return home, they can look forward to staying at home for the long run rather than returning to the hospital. Our care providers are able to assist seniors as they get back into the groove of their normal routines and carefully follow the recovery instructions provided by their physicians.
