Ready-Set-Go Home: Transitional Care in Amarillo Helps Avoid Hospital Readmissions

There are many things in life that are better not left up to chance. Health is one of them. That's why, when a treasured relative enters the hospital, you do everything you can to ensure the process is a smooth one. But what about after they leave? Without the support of doctors, nurses and hospital staff, seniors are left exposed to numerous risks that can cause them to take a turn for the worse and send them back into the hospital sooner than expected. Transitional care from Visiting Angels® Amarillo can help to keep them on a healing track by providing skilled, non-medical care for your relative in the comfort and security of their own home. 

What Causes Hospital Readmission?

Unfortunately, no matter how tough your senior is or how stable their condition at the time of discharge - all seniors are vulnerable to a number of preventable slip-ups that can cause readmission. Sometimes, it's because they struggle to keep up with their medications and follow-up appointments. Other times, a lack of supervision means they try to get up and about too soon, straining injuries or causing existing conditions to worsen. The Ready-Set-Go Home transitional care program from Visiting Angels Amarillo offers monitoring and support for your loved one that helps to mitigate these risks and prevent hospital readmission.
