Hospitalizations for an acute or chronic illness can be difficult. Ask anyone who has been in the hospital and they will tell you it’s no place to get some rest. This may be the reason why many seniors chose to rehabilitate at home.
Unfortunately, they may not get the care and attention to prevent being re-hospitalized and based on a 2017 study, ‘re-hospitalization rates for seniors are still around 15%’. The United Health Foundation has also reported “returning to a hospital within a short period of time after being discharged is costly and often avoidable”.
Texas Angels Home Care can help you rehabilitate at home by providing you or your loved one with an experienced home care aide. Our staff will provide you the care and support so you can regain your strength with the goal of swiftly returning to your pre-hospitalized self. With care from a Texas Angel, we can monitor your condition and report changes to our in-house nursing staff or your home health nurse. All designed so you can get help long before it reaches the point where you need to be re-hospitalized. We can also work in concert with your Home Health Agency.
