How does attentive non-medical home care prevent hospital re-admissions?

While the argument is often made that skilled medical home care helps patients avoid hospital re-admissions, typically we don’t hear about the ways that non-medical home care works toward the same cause.

How does our approach to non-medical home care help clients stay out of the hospital?

Our home health aides …

  • Help people follow discharge instructions.
  • Offer companionship and talk with clients and families to asses each client’s condition.
  • Keep an eye on seniors throughout the day/night and notify our team and the family of changes in condition.
  • Prevent falls by providing assistance with bathing, walking, toileting, and moving in and out of bed.
  • Make sure clients get to their doctors’ appointments.
  • Pick up prescriptions.
  • Manage medications, doses, and timing.
  • Maintain regular schedules for eating and sleeping to prevent dehydration, hunger, and exhaustion.

My husband and I are both seniors with our share of physical difficulties. He had open heart surgery a few months ago, and I am oxygen dependent with severe arthritis. The home health aide who helps us is very conscientious. She assists him with daily tasks, prepares meals, and goes far beyond what we had hoped. Thank you for your professionalism and dedication.
