When in a place like a hospital, rehab or even a nursing home we all wants to hear is “You can go home”! However, for a senior who lives alone, these words might also be the hardest ones to bear: “How am I going manager on my own, make flow up appointment with the doctor?” how am i going to drive myself, how about my medications. these are only some of the few question.
Avoid Re-Hospitalization or rehab
Patients are readmitted to the hospital within a month of discharge, and about a third were back in the hospital within three months. Unplanned return visits can be made lower by having the right home care . Most of these readmission’s are avoidable.
Study by Gerontological Society of America
⦁ People who lived alone had 50% odds of re-admission within 60 days.
⦁ People who lacked self-managing skills had 44% odds of early re-admission.
