Transition from Hospital to Home through Senior Home Care Services from Visiting Angels South Central Indiana

Caregivers from Visiting Angels can help your loved one in Bloomington, IN transition back to home after being discharged from the hospital with quality senior home care services

Ready-Set-Go Home is a transitional care program from Visiting Angels designed to help aging adults in Bloomington, IN make a successful recovery at home after being discharged from the hospital.

Among all senior beneficiaries of Medicare, almost 20 percent of discharged patients are readmitted to a hospital within four weeks after the discharge. For this reason, post-hospital recovery is a major health risk for older adults.

At Visiting Angels Bloomington, we are committed to reducing hospital readmissions through our transitioning home program called Ready-Set-Go Home. The program provides older adults with exceptional senior home care services during the first weeks of the recuperation process at home.

Three-Pronged Approach to Reducing Hospital Readmissions Through Senior Home Care Services

Many hospital readmissions could be prevented by simply following doctor’s orders. Unfortunately, following a serious injury or a prolonged stay at the hospital, even the most basic tasks can be too difficult or almost impossible to perform. To be able to completely follow doctor’s orders, seniors need a strong support system.

Ready-Set-Go home is customized for each client, ensuring a tailored service to match the client’s specific care needs. Our services are provided in accordance with doctor’s guidelines and in cooperation with family members and close friends.

Our Ready-Set-Go Home program is comprised of a three-pronged approach for reducing hospital readmissions:

  1. At the Hospital. Once the doctors start discussing your loved one’s discharge, we can offer guidance to the whole family and help with planning and preparations for Mom or Dad’s discharge date.
  2. At the Client's Home. After the discharge, our experienced caregivers will provide expert senior home care services to ensure a safer, more comfortable, and more speedy recovery. Our caregivers will closely monitor your loved one’s progress, spot changes in their physical or cognitive health, and make sure to follow all recovery protocols.
  3. At the Visiting Angels Office. We will offer our support and keep a close eye on your family and your designated caregiver from our office in Bloomington. Our team members will provide medication and appointment reminders, drive and accompany your Mom or Dad to follow-ups, and help family members coordinate medication, equipment, and food deliveries. 

If you have a loved one who could benefit from in-home senior care after an upcoming discharge, make sure to contact Visiting Angels in Bloomington, IN today and learn more about our Ready-Set-Go Home program. We are here for you!
