How Transitional Care in Southfield Reduces Hospital Readmissions

Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care

When a loved one is admitted to the hospital, it's common to feel completely overwhelmed with concern. The knowledge that they will soon be discharged can provide a bit of relief. However, if you are familiar with the rates of hospital readmission among older adults, you may also worry about your loved one's return home. Utilizing the services of a transitional care provider in Southfield, you can set the stage for your loved one to have a positive outcome and avoid a preventable episode of rehospitalization.

At Visiting Angels® Southfield, our caregivers are committed to helping seniors live their best lives. For most elderly adults, this means staying at home for as long as possible. Our Ready-Set-Go Home transitional care program has been carefully formulated to offer the various forms of support older individuals often need prior to a hospital discharge and after they finally return home.

What Causes Readmissions Among Seniors in Southfield? 

The hospital readmission rates for elderly adults are concerning. With nearly one in five Medicare beneficiaries being readmitted to the hospital within only four weeks of their discharge, it's clear many seniors could use additional help during this crucial window of recovery.

Without assistance at home, elderly adults may not be able to complete important directives provided by their physicians. For example, seniors who feel tired or weak are less likely to want to prepare healthy meals and may not be able to engage in their normal personal care routines or remember complicated medication schedules. When they lack support with these important tasks, they can experience a decline in their overall condition that makes a return to the hospital a necessity.

How Our Transitional Care Program Can Help

Ready-Set-Go Home is constructed around a three-prong approach to transitional care for the Southfield area. Here's what these three prongs look like:

  1. Support in the hospital environment. We help guide families as they make important decisions regarding their loved one's discharge and assist with coordinating post-discharge care.
  2. Assistance at home during recovery. As care recipients recover at home, they can have confidence knowing our caregivers are there to support them with completing their daily routines.
  3. Help from the staff at our office. We are always working behind the scenes to facilitate high-quality care that helps seniors age in place for longer.
