At Home Care Services for Post-Hospitalization in Hamilton, ON and the Surrounding Communities
Senior Homecare by Angels Explains At Home Care Services for Transitional Needs in Hamilton, Ancaster, Stoney Creek, Grimsby, and Nearby Areas
Ready-Set-Go Home is transitional care to help seniors adjust to living at home after a hospital stay. According to the New England Journal of Medicine, roughly 20 percent of discharged patients return to the hospital within 30 days. Elderly adults have a lower chance of recovery if they are re-hospitalized during this window.
Therefore, reducing hospital readmissions is essential to maximize health benefits and minimize expenses. Senior Homecare by Angels Hamilton is committed to reducing hospital readmissions through at home care services.
Most Seniors Need Aftercare
Most patients can avoid going back to the hospital by following their doctor’s orders. But after a serious injury or illness, even the most basic tasks can be difficult or impossible for elderly adults. For many seniors to follow their doctor’s instructions, they will need extensive outside support.
Our Ready-Set-Go Home program gives seniors this much-needed support, increasing the odds of recovery and reducing hospital readmission risks. Our at home care services can be aligned with their doctor’s instructions. Our services are customized for every client, ensuring a tailored approach to satisfy their specific needs.
Three Steps to Avoid Hospital Readmissions

- At the Client's Home: After your discharge, our caregivers provide at home care services to ensure a safe and comfortable recovery. We act as the “eyes and ears” in observing your loved one, spotting changes in their physical or mental health. We help them avoid skipped doctor’s visits and missed medication.
