Hospital readmission is a common issue among the elderly. Around 20 percent of discharged patients from the hospital get readmitted 30 days after readmission. Hospital readmission can be prevented by following the doctor’s instructions. There are many reasons why elderly patients get readmitted, including recuperating in a place that is not conducive to recovery, patient factors and receiving assistance from an inexperienced caregiver.
Your best solution is to hire a professional caregiver from Visiting Angels Silver Spring who can care for your elderly loved ones so that they are far from the risk of readmission. Our Ready-Set-Go Home program provides support and hastens the recovery of your loved ones so that the risk of readmission is reduced.
Our team of caregivers can provide you with essential personal services in accordance with the directives set by your loved one’s doctor as well as along with your preferences and needs. We can customize the services to each of our clients so that they can receive custom-tailored care that meets their needs.
