home care services had a significantly reduced rate in the percentage of patients readmitted to the hospital: 11 percent versus the national average of 20 percent.
The key elements of the Home Instead Senior Care network's Returning Home℠ Program that can be easily implemented by its CAREGivers include:
Utilizing these Home Instead CAREGiver services as part of a returning home program can mean better recovery outcomes for seniors who have been discharged from a medical facility with fewer readmissions and savings in both dollars and stress for them and their loved ones.
