Home 2 Stay
Rehospitalization is a serious concern for seniors who have experienced an injury, illness, or surgical procedure. Repeated visits to the emergency room and readmissions to the hospital are stressful for residents, their families, and outside health care resources. At The Palisades at Broadmoor Park, our Home 2 Stay program is designed to guard against avoidable rehospitalizations. Modeled after the Interact philosophy, or Interactions to Reduce Acute Care Transfers, we apply our approach of relationship-based care to help residents heal and recover after a hospital stay, without heading back to the emergency room after a setback. Our teams develop strong relationships with residents, allowing them to notice small changes in wellness and health status before a critical change occurs. By staying ahead of negative developments, we can be proactive with care and avoid readmission. Residents feel at ease knowing they are home to stay, and health care providers can be confident that their patients are getting the attention and care they need to recover and be well.
Supporting Strength & Wellness
MBK is one of the first companies in the senior living industry to directly focus on why rehospitalization occurs and what can be done to prevent them when possible. The Palisades at Broadmoor Park practices safe and efficient care by using specialized equipment like the Hoyer lift and safe techniques like two-person transfers. We employ the following techniques to address the health of our senior residents at the forefront, and avoid the stresses of rehospitalization whenever possible:
- Timely detection of and response to resident health status changes
- 24/7 RN consultant available to review status and recommend appropriate care changes
- Collaboration of care with hospitals and outside professionals before, during, and after hospitalization
- Discharge coordination and post-hospital follow-up to monitor health status and quality of life
