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. Not being able to rest may be the reason why many seniors choose 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 sill around 15%’. The United Health Foundation has also reported “returning to a hospital within a short 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 give you the care and support to swiftly regain your strength to return to your pre-hospitalized self. With supervision 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.
