How a Home Care Aide Helps Avoid Hospital Readmission in Silver Spring, MD and Surrounding Areas

The Visiting Angels home care aide team can support adults' safe recovery in Silver Spring, Bethesda, Chevy Chase, Rockville and surrounding areas of Maryland

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.
