How Transitional Care in South Jordan Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
With transitional care designed to help your loved one in South Jordan avoid a return to the hospital after their discharge, you can have greater confidence in their recovery. The care team at Visiting Angels® South Valley understands that high-quality support in the days and weeks after a hospital stay is essential. We can assist your loved one with returning to their normal daily rhythm and avoiding complications that could require rehospitalization.
We've developed an entire program related to transitional care called Ready-Set-Go Home. The goal of this program is to minimize the risks elderly adults commonly face after they arrive home from a hospital stay. Our services are customized to the unique needs of individual care recipients and promote a smooth recovery that helps seniors live their best lives in the South Jordon area.
What Causes Hospital Readmissions?
Medicare has reported concerning statistics about elderly adults and rehospitalizations. According to these reports, close to 20% of beneficiaries end up back at the hospital only 30 days after being discharged. Preventing avoidable complications is thus key in the first weeks after a senior's hospital stay.
When seniors aren't able to benefit from a helping hand at home in the crucial window of time after being discharged from the hospital, they often struggle more than they expect. Exhaustion from disrupted routines, mobility limitations, lingering symptoms, and medication side-effects can prevent them from getting back in the swing of things as quickly as they might like. Without a bit of support and supervision, they may find they are unable to follow through on their doctors' instructions and suffer complications as a result.
