Transitional care is specifically tailored to help our clients avoid preventable hospital readmission. Our caregivers can serve as a reminder to take medication on time, assist with daily tasks, and provide an overall helping hand. Transitional care with 1776 may what your loved one needs to avoid unnecessary hospital readmission. We can help.
While anybody who is discharged from the hospital needs some kind of aftercare assistance to avoid rehospitalization, the demand for seniors is much greater. In fact, nearly 1 in 5 Medicare patients were discharged from a hospital are readmitted within 30 days. Why?
