Part of the Family Caregiver Support Series, sponsored by Home Instead Senior Care
Includes Complimentary CEUs*
The costs of hospital readmissions—physical, financial, and emotional—are staggering. If you have a client who is about to return home from a hospital stay, or are a caregiver to an older adult in this situation, this web seminar will help to avoid unnecessary readmissions through preparing the home (and yourself) for the older adult’s return. Crucial aspects on what to expect the first day—and the first month—after they return home will also be detailed.
Participants in this web seminar will be able to:
- Describe four ways to prepare early for an older adult’s return home from a hospital stay;
- Identify five important tasks to be completed in the first hours after an older adult returns from the hospital; and,
- Pinpoint the four best transitional care points for an older adult’s first 30 days back at home.
