Living true to its trademarked tagline “Choose Home. Live Better.” Covered Caregiver recently broke news of its newest offering involving seniors and the necessary transport from hospital to one’s own home.
Newbury Park, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/29/2015 -- Effective as of March 2015, Covered Caregiver has officially registered their trademark name and tagline "Choose Home. Live Better." reflecting their specialized home care services for seniors. With their continued efforts to live up to this newly trademarked name, Covered Caregiver is also pleased to announce the arrival of their newest service known as Hospital to Home.
"This new service is particularly geared toward ensuring that our clients don't just receive the highest quality home care service available within Ventura County but also the most convenient way to transport their loved ones from being discharged from a hospital or skilled nursing facility back into the comforts of their own homes," shares Ohad Pearl, Founder of and Geriatric Care Manager for Covered Caregiver. "The best news is that we go above and beyond the normal transport that most emergency vehicles provide and at a fraction of the industry cost!"
The service costs $85 and includes prescription pick up, meal planning, bathing and bedroom preparation for first night's sleep. In addition, cleaning out and restocking the refrigerator and pantry with specific nutrition and/or dietary foods carried out according to doctor's orders.
It must be noted though payment for prescriptions and grocery purchases falls upon the client's responsibility as Covered Caregiver merely acts as a liaison and provides the needed assistance in the process. Caregivers are not allowed to handle any monetary tasks and if the need does arise, it is delegated to Covered Caregiver's accounting staff.
This profound service complements Medicare's efforts to minimize re-admission rates and hold hospitals accountable for the rising trend in re-hospitalizations within a month's period. According to Kaiser Health News, almost 1 out of every 5 Medicare patients is readmitted within 30 days after hospitalization. This fact has led to a record number of hospitals around the Country to be penalized by the U.S. government's insurance program.
This may add additional costs not just to Medicare but also to the patients themselves. Covered Caregiver assures its clients and their loved ones that they will not fall into this somber trend as their certified caregivers assist their successful transitions to home care services.
Covered Caregiver also offers companion care, personal care and specialty care services toward the betterment of seniors' lives aiming to age in place.
