The first days and weeks after a hospital stay are critical in ensuring a safe, healthy transition home. Leaving the structured environment of a hospital room with around-the-clock assistance and a dedicated nursing staff to return home without the same everyday support can unfortunately make a relapse or return to the hospital inevitable. During this period, seniors are also at a greater risk of suffering falls, injury, malnutrition, loneliness, medication noncompliance, and relocation stress syndrome. Consequently, one in five is typically readmitted to the hospital within 30 days.¹
Fortunately, most readmissions can be prevented with proper care and support.
At HomeWell, we believe assistance during the transition home significantly improves long-term outcomes for the individual in recovery and their family. Our GoHomeWell Signature™ Program is designed with you and your family’s future in mind, with a custom care plan aligned with your discharge order to help you recover safely at home after staying at the hospital or rehab facility and reduce your risk of readmission.
GoHomeWell focuses on four main areas:
Risk Identification and Management
We spot complications and proactively address the key drivers of readmission through our risk screening toolkit.
Care Management Oversight
We manage and adhere to special instructions and follow-up appointments after discharge.
We can facilitate regular communication between you, your family and other healthcare providers.
We track your progress to help ensure continued improvement and lasting results.
