How Transitional Care in Cayce Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
Is your family prepared for your loved one’s upcoming discharge from the hospital? Transitional care can help ensure you have all your bases covered. Our Ready-Set-Go Home program has been developed to support seniors in the Cayce area with making a successful recovery after a hospital visit. We aim to give elderly adults the helping hand they require to maintain their well-being after an injury or illness. With the assistance of a dedicated care provider, these vulnerable individuals can confidently readjust to life at home.
Why is Transitional Care Important?
Did you know almost 20% of older adults on Medicare are rehospitalized within thirty days of being discharged? This return to the hospital can be stressful and costly. Furthermore, it can take a toll on seniors’ independence and their ability to ultimately recover.
Following a hospital stay, even the most basic tasks can be overwhelming for seniors who are already exhausted by the recovery process. This leads many of them to be unable to maintain their well-being and is one of the main drivers of rehospitalizations.
Our caregivers for the Cayce area are ready to provide the help older adults need to avoid a hospital readmission. Our transitional care program at Visiting Angels Sumter includes a broad spectrum of services, from mobility support to medication reminders and cooking meals according to dietary requirements.
How Visiting Angels Sumter Helps Seniors in Cayce
Transitional care always begins in the hospital. We provide seniors and their families with our Ready-Set-Go Home discharge preparation guide and assist them with coordinating care for the upcoming weeks. This guide also provides valuable instructions for discussions to have with physicians and questions to ask about the areas in which seniors will require the most help.
When the senior returns to their home, one of our caregivers will provide personalized assistance. Our ultimate goal is to help seniors make a speedy recovery while remaining safe and content in a familiar environment. In addition to support with daily routines and help with following doctors’ orders, our caregivers also provide companionship and initiate joyful conversation.
