How Transitional Care in Sudbury Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
When a loved one is in the hospital, it can be extremely worrying. Yet, when their health is improving and they are set to be discharged, there are also concerns to consider. All too often, seniors are rehospitalized shortly after returning home. Fortunately, transitional care from a local care agency in Sudbury can help.
At Visiting Angels® Sudbury, we have an entire home care program dedicated to supporting seniors with the discharge and recovery process. Known as Ready-Set-Go Home, this program includes a wide variety of personalized services and dedicated care for elderly adults when they need it most.
What Causes Hospital Readmissions for Seniors in Sudbury?
More often than not, the cause of seniors being readmitted to the hospital is a lack of support with basic routines at home following their discharge. After a long illness or serious injury, even basic tasks can be incredibly challenging for vulnerable seniors. Bathing and grooming routines, as well as housekeeping and homemaking, can simply be too much for them to manage on their own. Add to this the need to remember medication schedules and follow the specific instructions provided by physicians, and it's no wonder many elderly adults experience a decline upon returning home.
How Visiting Angels Sudbury Helps
Our team of professional care providers is ready to offer multiple layers of support for seniors before and after their hospital discharge, providing crucial help that can minimize their risk of complications that require them to be readmitted to the hospital. The initial step is to meet with seniors and their family members at the hospital to begin discussing discharge planning. We'll assist with putting a plan into place for the discharge and will offer advice and guidance that helps families have productive conversations with physicians about what to expect from the recovery process.
Then, we move on to delivering care for seniors in the comfort of their home. Forms of assistance can include support with personal care, mobility, and day-to-day activities around the house. A caregiver can provide a helping hand with cooking meals, remembering complex medication schedules, and attending follow-up appointments with doctors.
