Transitional Care in Edgewater, MD 

Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care

Hospital stays are arduous and uncomfortable for anyone, but particularly so for seniors who long to return to the familiarity and comfort of their own home. Without support, the entire process, from admission to release, can be quite overwhelming. The Ready-Set-Go Home transitional care program from Visiting Angels® Edgewater helps to make the process a smooth one by creating a smooth transition from hospital to home in Edgewater, MD. 

Why Choose Transitional Care?

For recently released seniors, the risk of hospital readmission is high, even after they've come home. Without transitional care, seniors in Edgewater, MD are prone to missed medications and accidental re-injury which could cause a premature return to the hospital, which is both upsetting and costly.

Through our transitional care program, our caregivers in Edgewater, MD can keep track of the important details which can mean the difference between a permanent homecoming and an untimely return to the hospital. 

A few of the steps Visiting Angels Edgewater can take to help prevent readmission for seniors include:

  • Helping your loved one ask and get answers to important questions related to their care 
  • Keeping them company while they're in the hospital or recovering at home
  • Collaborating with medical staff to build a complimentary home care plan
  • Coordinating deliveries of medical supplies and equipment to your loved one's home
  • Making sure that prescriptions are taken on time and aftercare instructions are followed to the letter
  • Ensuring that they are eating, sleeping, and getting enough fluids
  • Monitoring them to prevent accidents which could set them back, like slips and falls

By taking a comprehensive, 3-pronged approach to transitional care in Edgewater, MD, we ensure that, whether your loved one is on their way into hospital, already there, or ready to return Visiting Angels Edgewater can guide them successfully through the process.
