Fort Worth, Texas March 18, 2019 – HomeWell Senior Care, Inc., one of the nations premiere franchisors of senior home care services, today announced the launch of the “Go HomeWell” Post-Medical Care Program.
Clients needing care upon arriving home from an acute hospital or rehabilitation stay will now be able to opt for care specifically designed to ease the difficulty of going from 24-hour care to their home. HomeWell’s post-medical care program provides the support necessary to avoid many of the issues that come with post-medical stays such as, repeated falls, injury, malnutrition, loneliness, and medication non-compliance.
“Research shows that nearly 20% of Medicare beneficiaries are re-hospitalized within 30-days of leaving the hospital and this equates to nearly $15 billion in healthcare costs per year,” said Michelle Sellers, vice president of operations at HomeWell Senior Care. “Studies show that post-medical home care services decrease a patient’s readmission risk. Our goal in creating the “Go HomeWell” program is to prevent readmissions by recognizing when a client is at risk for a hospital readmission, addressing those risks and then providing clients with proper post-acute care and oversite.”
The “Go HomeWell” program is designed to front-load care allowing clients to decrease services as they become more independent while still recognizing that each client’s need is unique and not all will “taper down” or graduate from services.
“We strive to be the bridge in the patient’s continuum of care,” said Karen Heyse, owner of HomeWell Senior Care Pima County. “At HomeWell, we consider ourselves partners with our local hospitals and rehabilitation centers in the quest to help clients grow stronger after post-medical care and remain independent in their homes. Our Care Managers conduct a personalized assessment with each client to determine the best Care Plan to address the wants and needs of our clients and their families while also working to decrease their fall risk and prevent unnecessary hospital readmissions.”
