In-Home Caregivers and Post-Discharge Care in Seattle, Washington

Are you preparing for discharge from the hospital or rehab facility to your home? Do you know a loved one who needs post-discharge care in Seattle, Washington, but find yourself struggling to provide them with adequate care? If you’re a family caregiver, it can be overwhelming and confusing to try to balance caring for your loved one at the same time as taking care of preexisting responsibilities like a job or family. As you attempt to match available resources with the needs of your loved one, knowing they’re coming home from the hospital soon, it can be daunting to find the right post-discharge care in Seattle, Washington, to make sure they’ll remain safely in their home. Fedelta Home Care addresses these needs with care management services and in-home Caregivers in Northwest Washington to provide the attentive care that your loved one deserves.

 

Did You Know These Post-Hospital Discharge Facts?

20% of all Medicare patients are readmitted to hospitals within 30 days

33% are readmitted within 90 days

*According to a 2009 national study in the New England Journal of Medicine

 

There are several underlying contributors to the staggering number of patients facing a hospital readmission and most, if not all, of the contributing factors can be addressed by extending the care you or your loved one needs from the hospital to the home.

 

Fedelta Home Care has developed a comprehensive post-hospital discharge care program to help our clients ensure a safe transition home and prevent readmissions to hospitals when possible. Your dedicated in-home care manager will participate in the hospital or acute care setting discharge process to assess needs, create a detailed care plan, prepare a start-of-care document, and monitor progress.
