How Transitional Care in South Phoenix Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
Visiting Angels South Phoenix offers a transitional at-home care program designed to support and assist seniors during their discharge and the first few weeks of recoveries in the home. This program considers the increased chances of readmission to the hospital within 30 days of being discharged. Our team offers aging adults support through a personalized at-home care plan created around their needs, reducing the risk of being readmitted and promoting their well-being.
Causes of Readmissions and the Importance of Transitional Care
Statistics show that about 20% of Medicare seniors return to the hospital within 30 of their initial discharge. Unfortunately, seniors have been less likely to make a full recovery, which leads to typically being readmitted to the hospital.
It is essential to do whatever you can to prevent any complications that lead to rehospitalizations. Activities of daily living usually want senior seniors back to the hospital; just drinking fluids, eating regularly, and sticking to medication schedules can be a lot for an individual who has experienced a severe injury to manage.
When this becomes an issue, a professional Visiting Angels caregiver can step in to provide at-home care-- they ensure that your loved one is following any doctor’s orders to work towards a gentle recovery that should not result in any readmissions. Caregivers also can provide emotional support for your loved ones when they begin to feel lonely.
