Ready-Set-Go Home: Home Health Care Services to Help Seniors in Washington, DC Avoid Hospital Readmissions
Through the Ready-Set-Go Home program, Visiting Angels provides personalized home health care services to help recently discharged seniors in Washington, DC avoid being readmitted to the hospital
Has your elderly loved one recently been discharged from the hospital? If so, they may need additional in-home support in order to make a safe and smooth recovery. Fortunately, the Ready-Set-Go Home program from Visiting Angels Washington DC includes the home health care services seniors need to recover at home and reduce the likelihood of being readmitted.
What You Should Know About Seniors and Hospital Readmissions
Seniors who have been admitted to the hospital are prone to being readmitted after discharge. In fact, one out of every five Medicare beneficiaries ends up rehospitalized within 30 days of discharge. Being readmitted can lower a senior’s chance of being able to live independently after being discharged again, so it’s essential for seniors who live on their own to focus on recovery once they’ve returned home.
However, many seniors find they don’t have the support they need to follow directives and recommendations from their medical team. For example, they may not be able to pick up prescribed medication from the pharmacy if they can’t drive themselves. Or they may risk slipping and falling if no one can help them with light housekeeping tasks.
This is where in-home care comes in handy.
