How Home Helpers® Home Care Can Fill Care Gaps and Reduce Preventable Hospitalizations

Over the past two years, we’ve tested and developed a number of new services and offerings that will fill care gaps and reduce preventable hospital admissions. Our Cared-4 Comprehensive Care Program is a customizable, comprehensive package that clients can take advantage of, in addition to more traditional services.

The Goal of Home Helpers® Home Care Cared-4 Program

“In-home care has been around for a long time: the concept of being able to help support individuals with their activities of daily living, helping them live a more independent lifestyle for as long as possible. However, we were looking around and saying, ‘You know, there’s more to it than this,’” said CEO Emma Dickison to Home Health Care News.

With our Cared-4 program, we can make sure seniors have access to the tools needed to avoid health risks while living at home.

Many Hospital Readmissions for Seniors are Preventable

According to the American Geriatric Society, roughly 62% of all senior hospital readmissions are preventable. The top-four risks of readmission are:

  • Accidental falls
  • Medication errors
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Failure to follow care plans following a hospital discharge

“[People at risk for falling or who can’t manage their medication] may have trouble with wellness and nutritious meals. We wanted to figure out a way to take and broaden that continuum of care and solve those pain points for families,” said Dickison.

If, for example, one of our clients has trouble adhering to a medication regimen, they could add Direct Link® monitoring technology to their package. If a client tends to forget when to eat, drink, or exercise, we can add scheduled check-in calls to their program as a friendly reminder.

Many of our clients don’t need 24/7 in-home care. By adding wellness calls on days when Caregivers aren’t in the home, we can provide seniors with the care they need and families with peace of mind.

As an essential business, Home Helpersis proud to be helping our seniors stay healthy and safe during these uncertain times. If you’re someone who’s looking to make a positive difference in the lives of senior citizens, become a part of our successful franchise!
