How Transitional Care in Simi Valley Reduces Hospital Readmissions

Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care

On average, one in five Medicare beneficiaries who have been discharged from the hospital return for readmission within one month. The aim of Ready-Set-Go Home, the transitional care program from Visiting Angels® Simi Valley, is to lower this statistic for local seniors.

Ready-Set-Go Home can help reduce hospital readmissions by ensuring elderly adults have the help they need. This program has been formulated to assist seniors with making a successful transition from hospital to home, promote their recovery, and encourage a return to independent living.

Hospitalizations can be stressful experiences for both care recipients and their families. Repeat hospitalizations only compound this stress and minimize the chance that the senior will make a full recovery. Preventing the need for hospital readmissions is key to ensuring elderly adults maintain their quality of life while aging in place.

What Causes Hospital Readmissions for Seniors in Simi Valley?

In many cases, older adults go through a period of functional decline after being hospitalized. This can occur for a number of reasons, including disrupted sleeping routines, medication side-effects, and lingering symptoms. When these circumstances prevent seniors from following their doctors' instructions or maintaining their health at home, the stage is set for complications that require a hospital readmission.

How Our Transitional Care Program Can Help

Our local care agency is committed to lowering hospital readmission rates through our transitional care program. The services in this program are designed to facilitate positive outcomes for seniors. Moreover, we make sure to provide clients with the essential forms of support they need after being hospitalized.

As Ready-Set-Go Home is a transitional care program, it starts in the hospital rather than the home. At Visiting Angels Simi Valley, we equip care recipients with our discharge planning guide to help set their expectations and prepare for the return home. We also coordinate with families to develop a comprehensive care plan based on the senior's needs and their doctor's directives.

Then, we move on to delivering the at-home care each senior requires. Depending on their personal risk factors and capabilities, these services could include help with mobility, monitoring, medication reminders, assistance with personal care, and many other services.
