One of the top causes of hospital readmission or delayed recovery following a hospitalization is insufficient support or the lack of personalized care. If you or a loved one has recently been hospitalized or is scheduled for an upcoming surgery or procedure, you may find the experience of sorting post-hospitalization care to be challenging. At Home Care Assistance, we are committed to reducing avoidable hospital readmissions and making the transition back to home following a hospitalization as seamless as possible. Our specialized post-hospitalization care promotes a faster recovery period for our clients and provides peace of mind for their loved ones.
The days and weeks immediately after discharge from the hospital is a critical time for patients. With our specialized post-hospitalization care, a caregiver is present before discharge to ensure a smooth transition from the hospital to the home and to assist with a wide range of daily tasks. Assistance with activities of daily living allow individuals in recovery to focus on getting well and achieving their optimal quality of life.
35% of seniors are readmitted to the hospital after only 90 days of being discharged, usually because they did not follow the instructions for medication and treatment or missed a follow up appointment. In addition to assistance with daily activities, our specialized post hospital care helps our clients avoid readmission through the following ways:
We know that each client is unique. Our caregiver coordinates with our client, their family, physicians and pharmacists to create a personalized post-hospitalization care plan.
