Causes of Readmissions for South Phoenix-Area Seniors
Statistics show that about 20 percent of Medicare recipients return to the hospital within 30 of their initial discharge. Unfortunately, seniors have been less likely to recover fully, which leads to typically being readmitted to the hospital.
Doing whatever you could to prevent any complications leading to rehospitalizations would be best. Trying to complete Activities of Daily Living independently can cause seniors to go back to the hospital; drinking fluids, eating regularly, and sticking to medication schedules can be a lot for an individual who has experienced a severe injury.
When this becomes an issue, home care professionals from Visiting Angels South Phoenix can step in to provide transitional 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. Our caregivers can also provide companionship and emotional support for your loved one when they feel lonely.
