Loving In Home Care Service in Fort Myers, FL
Attention hospital executives, discharge planners and social workers: Are hospital readmission penalties under the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) affecting your bottom line? With our in home care service, we can address all four of the identified triggers that cause a patient to return to your facility within 30 days. These include:
- Lack of social support
- Mismanagement of medication
- Not understanding the disease process
- Missing follow up appointments
The Affordable Care Act (ACA), love it or hate it, it is the law of the land. Obamacare is now an unavoidable reality and hospital readmission penalties are costing facilities one percent of Medicare revenues, plus reimbursement for patients readmitted within 30 days. If you are looking for an in home care service to be an ally in discharge planning and transitional care, we can help.
Hospital readmission penalties are avoided if the patient followed the plan laid out for them by the hospital upon their discharge. Unfortunately, some patients do not have a loved one or family member to care for them, helping them to follow that plan. Here is where our Fort Myers senior care enters the picture: The Caregivers with our care service make sure patients take their medicine on time and provide transportation so that they make their follow up appointments with their regular physician. Our licensed and bonded care providers understand the disease process.
An important part of the healing process is companionship. Our home helpers provide that through our in home care service. Other useful services we offer are bed making, dressing, dusting, safety and fall protection, meal preparation, incontinence care, organizing mail and trips to the post office, oral hygiene and pet care and feeding, grocery shopping, taking out the trash, washing dishes and providing assistance on walks.
When you cannot do it all. Give us a call.
We look forward to speaking with you about your unique situation and how our in home care service may be able to help.
