Atlanta, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/13/2014 -- 4 Seasons Home Care (http://www.4SeasonsCare.com), located in Marietta, Georgia, today announced that the agency is celebrating its anniversary offering home care solutions to families with older loved ones in the Marietta area and surrounding Metro Atlanta cities. Owner Lou Ann Gregory, RN will expand the emphasis of her agency to market her services towards hospital executives, case managers and discharge planners that are currently facing challenges minimizing the quantity of readmission penalties their centers are enduring under the Affordable Health Act.
Upon discharge a patient is given a plan of care to be followed to avoid future hospital stays. Under rules of the Affordable Care Act, if a patient is readmitted within 30 days, a hospital must forfeit one percent of Medicare revenues and reimbursement for those patients. When these plans are not followed, the resulting penalties negatively affect a facility’s bottom line.
4 Seasons Home Care was founded by Lou Ann Gregory, RN with over 30 years of experience in the industry who recognizes that patients being discharged from hospitals and rehabilitation facilities need to be transitioned back to home with a qualified, competent home care agency. Hospital readmissions will decline with competent caregivers providing assistance in the home based on a care plan created by a Registered Nurse.
Considering that the opening of 4 Seasons Home Care began in Marietta just one year ago, the non-medical, in-home caregiving firm has enjoyed annual double-digit growth and a strong word-of-mouth reference reputation in the industry. The accessibility of these solutions is extensively known by potential long-term customers and by those in the medical sector.
"Education is essential to be able to empower individuals of all ages to make the best possible decisions so that they can stay in their residence of choice as long as they can continue to be safe," shared Lou Ann. "Sadly, some clients do not have loved ones that live nearby or a dedicated household member who is available to assist with daily living activities. That’s where 4 Seasons can step in to provide quality, trusted and compassionate care so our clients can thrive in an environment where they call home.”
4 Seasons Home Care Mission Statement, “4 Seasons Home Care is dedicated to providing the highest quality home care with compassion and respect for each person and to make a real and lasting difference in the lives of one another and the people we serve” applies not only to our clients and their families, but to our employees and those living in the communities we serve.
