Visiting Angels' At Home Senior Care in Tucker, GA

At Visiting Angels, We Reduce Hospital Readmission Through Our At Home Senior Care in Tucker

Our Ready-Set-Go Home is an at home senior care plan that is designed to help our clients successfully transition from a hospital setting to a home environment through our three-step approach.

Roughly 20% of older adults on Medicare return to the hospital within the month after a discharge. Seniors have a much lower chance of recovery if they are readmitted during this 30-day window, which is why reducing hospital readmissions is crucial.

Our wide range of at home senior care plans provides our clients with skilled, non medical assistance. After a hospital discharge, our friendly and caring staff will be on hand to coordinate your loved one’s transition home, help your loved one during this transition, and ensure on-site support in the weeks following their discharge.

Our approach has seen a high degree of success. While most readmission can be avoided by simply following doctors’ orders, it’s a problematic situation for seniors who live alone and have no assistance. Coupled with weakness, pain, and immobility, it’s essentially impossible for a senior to care for themselves. Therefore, at home senior care support is needed from an outside source.

The Ready-Set-Go Home Program’s Three-Step Approach

How we can reduce hospital readmission:

At the Hospital: We start our Ready-Set-Go Home program before your loved one leaves the hospital, with caregivers who are on-site to provide support for the client and their family. With their guidance and suggestions, they can greatly simplify the discharge process.

At the Client's Home: After the discharge, our care providers ensure skilled, non medical assistance to provide your loved one with specialized care and safety. During the recovery, we will be the “eyes and ears”, keeping watch of your senior’s physical and cognitive health, contacting you of anything changes. Additionally, should any family caregivers need relief, our respite care program allows them to take care of their own health and well-being.

At the Visiting Angels Office: At our office, our staff will support your family. We can also accompany your loved one to appointments, provide appointment and medication reminders, and help you organize and coordinate food, equipment, and medication deliveries.

If you need care for a loved one, call us today for a free, in home assessment. Our Ready-Set-Go Home program can assist before, during, and after a hospital discharge to reduce the likelihood of readmission, ensuring that your loved one is well-cared for at all times.
