Home Care Assistance of Ft. Lauderdale Fosters a Cutting-Edge Approach to Reducing Avoidable Hospital Readmissions
As the premier provider of quality care at home, Home Care Assistance of Ft. Lauderdale is partnering with leading medical institutions to reduce avoidable hospital readmissions
(Fort Lauderdale, FL – June 1, 2016) As the U.S. continues to deal with growing health care costs, the government is focused on eliminating avoidable hospital readmissions. These readmissions are typically caused by insufficient post-hospitalization care, failure to adhere to prescribed medication or therapy schedules, or a lack of care for recently discharged patients. According to the Medicare Payment Advisory Committee, almost 20% of Medicare patients will be readmitted to the hospital within 30 days. These readmissions cost over 15 billion dollars annually and are a source of tremendous anxiety for patients and their families.
Home Care Assistance of Ft. Lauderdale works with local medical institutions and healthcare providers to help reduce avoidable hospital readmissions by providing patients and their families with the resources they need to effectively handle discharge and post-hospitalization recovery.
“The post-hospitalization and discharge process can be a stressful time for families. Often, families are trying to coordinate care for their loved ones from another state or while juggling other responsibilities,” said Manpreet Dhalla, Owner of Home Care Assistance of Ft. Lauderdale. “Our Hospital to Home Care program enables families to effectively manage the transition from hospital to the home. We are involved every step of the way to alleviate the stress and concerns of families, and to ensure quality care at home.”
As a trusted partner of leading medical facilities and an advocate for aging adults, Home Care Assistance of Ft. Lauderdale is uniquely positioned to help reduce hospital readmissions. Combining case studies with leading medical research, we have developed an impactful suite of educational resources for hospitalized patients, including From Hospital to Home Care, a comprehensive book on the hospital discharge and recovery process. We also have a dedicated website: HospitaltoHomeCare.com, a free online resource for families seeking information about the discharge process and recovery at home.
Our clients recognize the importance of home care after hospitalization and how Home Care Assistance of Ft. Lauderdale can help them. “We contacted Home Care Assistance in Ft. Lauderdale when we needed assistance for both of my elderly parents — one struggling with Parkinson’s disease and the other recovering from major surgery. The owner could not have been more accommodating, helpful, professional, or compassionate. [The caregivers] sent to care for my parents are kind, attentive, trustworthy, and responsible. They each have quickly become an invaluable part of our family. I would have had to quit my job to take care of my parents full time.”
