What Causes Readmissions?

Generally, before a patient is discharged from a medical facility a family member is there to help and discuss the transitional care they'll need after their hospital stay in Somerset County, but what if they can't be? This leaves the senior feeling alone and depressed making them vulnerable to health issues which could lead to readmission. Some causes for re-admissions may be due to:

  • Missed doctor appointments due to lack of transportation
  • Unfilled prescriptions
  • Forgetting to take medications properly or complete therapies
  • Inability to shop and prepare nutritious meals
  • Depression caused by loneliness

As a significant part of your loved one's care plan, Visiting Angels Somerset and their professional caregivers can help your loved one to follow their wellness plan at home for a quicker recovery to avoid readmission.
