Part of the Empowering Professionals in Aging series. Presented by Home Instead, an Honor Company.

Anyone working in healthcare today knows the importance of reducing hospital or rehabilitation facility readmissions. Older adults are at risk for readmissions if they lack proper support at home. The days following the transition back to the home can be crucial to keeping the older adult safe. However, older adults and their families may not be prepared for all that is involved in the person’s care as they adjust to their old environment. Learn how support and help at home can be crucial to a successful transition and reduce the risk of readmission.

Participants in this webinar will be able to:

  • Understand the common reasons older adults can be readmitted.
  • Realize the top 5 ways help at home can reduce the risk for readmissions.
  • Learn tips for family caregivers to prepare the environment for a return home.
  • Discover resources to support older adults in the home.
