How Transitional Care in West Salt Lake City Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
Ready-Set-Go Home is the transitional care program from Visiting Angels® West Salt Lake that supports elderly adults through a hospital discharge. We have a team of care providers in West Salt Lake City that offers dedicated care for seniors prior to a discharge and during their recovery at home. We aim to minimize their risk of rehospitalization and promote their comfort as they recover their strength and energy following a hospital stay.
What Causes Readmissions?
Hospitalizations are challenging for elderly adults and can be stressful for their family members. However, nearly one in five Medicare beneficiaries undergo a hospital readmission after less than a month of being discharged. This is often the result of a decline that occurs after hospitalization or because of preventable complications that take a toll on their health.
We are committed to reducing the risk of hospital readmissions by offering seniors a helping hand with the steps involved in the recovery process. When elderly adults benefit from assistance at home, they can more easily follow their doctors' orders. Furthermore, our care providers act as an extra set of eyes and ears in the home, giving concerned family members peace of mind.
How Our Transitional Care Program Helps Seniors in West Salt Lake City
While seniors are still in the hospital, they can utilize the important information outlined in our Ready-Set-Go Home discharge guide. This guide includes essential questions patients should ask as they prepare to return home. They can also use this guide to jot down details discussed with their health care providers about their discharge plans. These details will help their caregivers identify the areas in which they require the most assistance, making it easier to coordinate the right level of care.
Our team members visit seniors in the hospital and put their care plan in place well before the discharge occurs. The care we deliver is always individualized to accommodate the specific needs and challenges seniors are expected to face in their recovery.
After they return home, care recipients can utilize their Ready-Set-Go Home discharge guide as a reference. Additionally, they'll benefit from the compassionate care of a dedicated care provider as they make a successful recovery.
