Attention hospital executives, discharge planners, and social workers: Are hospital readmission penalties affecting your bottom line?
Assisting Hands Home Care can address all four of the identified triggers that cause a patient to return to your facility within 30 days.
- Lack of social support
- Mismanagement of medication
- Not understanding the disease process
- Missing follow up appointments
If you are looking for an ally in discharge planning and transitional care, we can help.
Hospital readmission penalties are avoided if the patient followed the plan laid out for them by the hospital upon their discharge.
Unfortunately, some patients do not have a loved one or family member to care for them, helping them to follow that plan.
Here is where we enter the picture.
Assisting Hands® makes sure that patients take their medicine on time and provide transportation so that they make their follow up appointments with their regular physician.
Our licensed and bonded caregivers understand the disease process.
An important part of the healing process is companionship.
Our caregivers provide that to your loved ones.
Other useful services we offer are bed-making, dressing, dusting, safety and fall protection, meal preparation, incontinence care, organizing mail and trips to the post office, oral hygiene, pet care and feeding, grocery shopping, taking out the trash, washing dishes, accompanying your loved one on walks, and more.
Let us bring you peace of mind when you cannot do it all. Give us a call today!
