Visiting Angels' Senior Home Care Assistance Reduces Hospital Readmission in Schererville, Crown Point, Valparaiso, Munster, Dyer, and Surrounding Areas

Visiting Angels of Schererville's Ready-Set-Go Home program was specially created as a transitional senior home care assistance plan, ensuring a successful transition from a hospital to a home setting. To reduce hospital readmission in Schererville and the surrounding cities, a serious risk for seniors during the 30 days following a hospital discharge, we utilize a three-prong approach that provides positive results.

The Importance of One-on-One Transitional Care

Did you know that roughly 20% of seniors on Medicare who are discharged from the hospital end up back in the emergency room within 30 days of returning home? The truth is, within this 30-day period, elderly individuals have a significantly lower chance of recovery. As such, it’s essential to reduce hospital readmission during this time.

At Visiting Angels of Schererville, our Ready-Set-Go Home program is our commitment to reducing hospital readmission. With our program, senior care recipients get one-on-one senior home care assistance that provides aid during the period following a hospital discharge. When you call our local office, we’ll assist you in several ways: coordinating your elderly family member’s transition home, helping your loved one during this transition, and supporting them throughout the first few weeks home from the hospital.

Three-Prong Approach to Reducing Hospital Readmission

While most re-admissions are preventable, it can be hard to follow medical orders when you’re by yourself after a serious injury or illness. During this time, it can be almost impossible for elderly adults to perform even the most basic tasks. The fact is, extensive, outside support is required for seniors to follow doctor’s orders precisely.

Thanks to the essential senior home care assistance provided by our Ready-Set-Go Home program, the odds of a full or partial recovery is greatly increased. And as such, hospital readmission are significantly reduced with our aides.

Here’s how our Ready-Set-Go Home program works:

At the Hospital. The Ready-Set-Go Home program begins during your loved one’s hospitalization, where our home health providers offer supportive services in the hospital for family and friends. With their help, they can simplify the discharge process and provide valuable information.

At the Client's Home. After they return home, your loved one will get assistance to ensure comfort and safety during the recovery period. While providing quality and compassionate care, our aides will keep an eye on your senior and keep you abreast of their physical and cognitive health. Additionally, Visiting Angels of Schererville can provide respite care for family and friends who are acting as unpaid caregivers.

At the Office. Our office support staff oversees a myriad of details, including care schedules. Aside from using various tools for reducing hospital readmission, we also provide appointment and medication reminders, accompany your senior to appointments, and help families coordinate equipment, medication, and food deliveries.
