Avoiding Hospital Readmissions With Home Health Care Services in Westminster, CO and Surrounding Areas

With home health care services from Visiting Angels, seniors in Westminster, Broomfield, Northglenn, CO and surrounding areas can get the recovery care they need at home to avoid being readmitted to the hospital

As we get older, recovering after medical interventions or a stint spent at the hospital becomes increasingly difficult. At the same time, some seniors who are already having trouble maintaining their independence have an even more difficult time and may even compromise their safety and well-being trying to keep up with doctors' orders. Unfortunately, some are unable to keep up with doctors' demands, which is all the more dangerous. If you believe your senior parent to be in this position, the good news is that there is a solution for them: the Ready-Set-Go Home program from Visiting Angels Westminster.

We offer this program through the Senior Life Care Navigation program, a collection of comprehensive home health care services for older adults. It is designed to help older adults ensure a successful transition back home after they have been hospitalized. Over the years, we developed this program to make sure seniors are getting everything they need during this vulnerable time for them. We have come up with a three-prong approach that helps seniors reduce the possibility of being readmitted to the hospital, which they are at a major risk for in the months after they have been discharged.

The Importance of Professional Home Health Care Services During the Recovery Process for Seniors in Westminster and Nearby Communities

We have always known how vulnerable the month after a hospital discharge is for seniors, but recent data from Medicare has confirmed our suspicion. One in five older adults on Medicare end right back up in the hospital in the 30 days after they have been discharged. The saddest bit of this information is that older adults who are readmitted back in the hospital in the month after their discharge have a much lower chance of ever recovering. Let's help your loved one avoid this grim reality by getting them the in-home care they need.

At Visiting Angels Westminster, we are committed to helping seniors throughout Westminster, Denver, Broomfield and surrounding areas in Colorado. As part of our Ready-Set-Go Home program, we will be there for your loved one, providing them with skilled, essential home health care at the hospital, during their transition and when they are back in their home.

Our approach to the transition back home and recovery process includes:

  • Coordinating with you and your loved one's medical team to ensure they return home safely and have the resources they need for a stress-free recovery
  • Providing in-home care services once your loved one is discharged so they can stick to healthy routines that promote quick recovery
  • Keeping in touch with you in order to help you stay up-to-date on your loved one's recovery process and overall well-being
