Are You Looking for Senior Home Care Assistance to Help Your Loved One in Greater Schererville, IN Have a Successful Transition Home from the Hospital?

Visiting Angels Reduces Hospital Readmission in Schererville and Surrounding Areas With the Help of Our Senior Home Care Assistance Services

The Visiting Angels 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.

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, elderly care recipients get senior home care assistance that provides skilled, non-medical 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 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 Visiting Angels aides.

Here’s how the Visiting Angels Ready-Set-Go Home program works:

At the Hospital. The Ready-Set-Go Home program begins during your loved one’s hospitalization, where our caregivers provide 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 skilled, non medical 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 can provide respite care for family and friends who are acting as unpaid caregivers.

At the Visiting Angels 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.
