How to Avoid Hospital Readmissions

March 23, 2015


The best part of a hospitalization is, without a doubt, being discharged! But for many seniors, that could actually be the first step towards a re-hospitalization if certain steps aren’t taken to ensure a smooth transition from hospital to home. One way to keep your elderly loved one safe and well cared for after a hospital stay is to enlist the services of a professional home care agency for help with:

  • Transportation home from the hospital and to follow-up appointments
  • Connections to resources in the community
  • Assistance with in-home medical equipment or telehealth
  • A safety assessment of the home to avoid tripping hazards
  • Bathing assistance
  • Ambulation supervision to prevent falls
  • Exercise/activity as allowed by the physician
  • Meals that follow any dietary restrictions, such as a low-sodium or low-fat diet
  • Implementation of an activity/exercise plan
  • Pet care


Through regular home care services, in-home caregivers can also recognize a change in conditions and take prompt actions to avoid complications or readmission to the hospital. In-home caregivers are trained to recognize these and other key health indicators after surgery or a hospitalization:

  • Post-operative infection
  • Undesired reactions to medications
  • Changes in fluid intake or output
  • Swollen ankles
  • Shortness of breath
  • Dizziness
  • Unexplained increased fatigue
  • Signs and symptoms of a blood clot        


Our goal at AAging Better In-Home Care is to keep seniors safe, healthy, and happy at home, with a helping hand from our in-home caregivers, nurses, CNAs, and homemakers. Whether your family needs just a couple of hours of post-surgery care per day or full, around-the-clock assistance (24-hour care), we’re here to help.  Contact us any time at 208-777-0308 or 208-263-7889 for more information or to arrange a free in-home assessment for yourself or for your loved one.
