How Transitional Care in View Park Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
Transitional care from Visiting Angels® View Park can offer your loved one the support they need to make a smooth transition from being at the hospital to living at home. In many cases, elderly adults struggle to manage their own well-being after being discharged from the hospital. With the Ready-Set-Go Home transitional care program from our local senior care agency, seniors can promote their recovery and minimize the chances they will end up back at the hospital due to complications.
What Causes Hospital Readmissions in View Park?
Nearly 20% of Medicare beneficiaries are hospitalized within one month of a hospital discharge. Unfortunately, this return to the hospital can have a negative impact on the recovery process, impair seniors' independence, and reduce their quality of life.
One of the many factors that can lead to rehospitalization is seniors' inability to complete basic activities or adhere to doctors' instructions in their weak and exhausted state after a hospital stay. Because of this lack of energy and motivation, they may struggle to prepare nutritious meals, remember when to take medications or attend follow-up appointments with their physicians.
How Transitional Care from Visiting Angels View Park Helps
Our transitional care program has been specially designed to accommodate the needs of seniors who have recently endured a hospital stay. To ensure we provide comprehensive care individualized to the care recipient's needs, we start by visiting with them and their family caregivers at the hospital prior to the discharge. We offer crucial information about the planning and preparation process, including access to our Ready-Set-Go Home discharge planning guide. This guide can be referred back to throughout the senior's journey for tips and valuable resources.
During this initial preparation period at the hospital, we'll craft a home care plan around the types of activites the senior is expected to require support with. Once they return home, we'll have a caregiver from our team deliver these compassionate care services. Examples of ways our caregivers can help include cooking healthy meals, doing light housekeeping, assisting with personal care routines, providing medication reminders, and monitoring seniors' overall well-being.
