Research shows that quality in-home senior care dramatically reduces the chance for hospital readmissions after discharge. “Re-hospitalization” is defined as readmission within 60 days after discharge; the social factors in one’s home environment make a big difference, whether one lives alone, with family members or a 24-hour caregiver. The less your elderly loved one is able to take care of himself, the greater the chance of hospital readmission. Frequency and type of in-home care as well as the senior’s ability to function independently are all factors in whether or not the elderly patient returns to the hospital within 20-60 days. A-1 Home Care in Diamond Bar is Los Angeles County’s leading elder care agency in terms of quality, commitment and integrity.
Quality over Quantity in Elder Care
You may think that frequent in-home care assistance will reduce the chances of re-hospitalization, but statistics show the contrary. Frequency is not the only determining factor; if elderly patients are not receiving instrumental support they need from 24 hour caregivers, they’re still at risk for readmission as their counterparts who live alone. The quality of in-home support is just as important, if not more, for seniors. That’s why, for 25 years, A-1 Home Care has continually provided stellar round-the-clock caregiving services in Diamond Bar, Rowland Heights, Hacienda Heights, Azusa, Covina, Arcadia, San Dimas, and other neighboring cities in the area. Our certified, pre-screened caregivers deliver service with compassion, tenderness and skill, which goes a long way in preventing hospital readmission.
