Visiting Angels Provides Home Health Care to Help Seniors in Spartanburg, SC and the Surrounding Area Avoid Hospital Readmissions
How Transitional Home Health Care Helps Seniors in Greer, Taylors, and Nearby Cities Reduce Hospital Readmissions
At Visiting Angels of Spartanburg, one of our biggest goals is to enable seniors to continue living safely and comfortably in their own homes for as long as they wish. Transitional care is an important service for many seniors with medical needs who are unable to move back home on their own. Our transitional home health care services help seniors in the Spartanburg area recover from a long stay in a medical facility and transition back to the safety and security of their own homes.
Among seniors on Medicare, as many as 20% of discharged patients end up back in the hospital within 30 days of being sent home. Our transitional care services try to reduce these high rates of readmission for seniors in the Spartanburg area by offering our unique and specialized form of home health care. We also offer care in hospitals and through our office as well to help seniors’ transition in the first week’s home after an extended hospital visit.
What Causes Readmissions
Even though a senior may be physically able to return home there is still an active ongoing struggle to remain home without the proper home health care in place. More often than not, they will need to follow a set of discharge instructions in order to make a full recovery. Mobility issues, memory problems, and other factors, however, can make it difficult for seniors to follow discharge instructions without support. These factors can lead to hospital readmission.
