How Comfort Care in Kitsap County, WA Reduces Hospital Readmissions

Reducing hospital readmission is key for maintaining a senior’s overall physical and mental health. Our Ready-Set-Go Home program is designed to help seniors achieve a successful transition back home after being released from the hospital. At Visiting Angels of Kitsap County, we have developed a three-pronged approach to comfort care that has been proven to prevent hospital readmissions.

Our Three-Prong Approach

Our Ready-Set-Go Home program is designed to increase the chance of a full or partial recovery after being released from the hospital. Many hospital readmissions happen because a patient doesn’t or isn’t able to follow their doctor’s orders. Although, following a serious injury or illness, it can be very hard for an individual to follow certain tasks, even from their own doctor. They need professional help to ensure a safe transition.

To reduce hospital readmissions, Visiting Angels of Kitsap County has developed this three-pronged approach:

  1. At the Hospital: Our Kitsap County caregivers can help you through the discharge process and help you plan. We also offer a “Ready-Set-Go Home” guide that gives detailed information on questions to ask doctors and nurses, hospital discharges in general, and tips on reducing readmission risks.
  2. At the Client’s Home: To ensure your loved one’s safety, we provide skilled, non medical comfort care at their home. We know the reasons why many seniors skip appointments and don’t follow doctor’s orders. We stop those behaviors to give a client the highest chance of recovery.
  3. At the Visiting Angels of Kitsap County Office: At our offices, we will be working tirelessly to provide your loved one with the support that they need to recover. The staff at Visiting Angels of Kitsap County can provide medication reminders, transportation to appointments, and help you coordinate food and medication deliveries.
