Transitional Care in Eastern Cuyahoga County

Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care

Has your parent or loved one been admitted to the hospital due to illness, injury, surgery, or other cause? If so, you may be focused on helping your loved one heal and get home as soon as possible. Hospital stays can be stressful, not only financially, but emotionally as well. Sleep and eating schedules are often interrupted, as well as daily routines, making many seniors anxious to return home as quickly as possible. When your loved one in Eastern Cuyahoga County is living with Alzheimer's or dementia, disrupted routines can be particularly hard to handle. Transitional care from Visiting Angels® Cleveland OH can provide your loved one with compassionate support.

Unfortunately, 1 in 5 seniors will face the disappointment of being readmitted to the hospital within the first 30 days after discharge due to complications. Seniors with chronic health issues such as dementia and Alzheimer's may be at an increased risk because of an inability to follow discharge instructions from their physicians. Assistance from a knowledgeable professional, such as the transitional care providers from Visiting Angels Cleveland, can help your loved one continue their recovery in their home.

Why Hospital Readmissions Occur

There are countless reasons why hospital readmissions occur. For instance, your loved one may have a hard time remembering to take their prescribed medications, or taking the proper amount. Your family member may struggle with limited mobility after their hospital stay, leading to an increased fall risk. If your loved one's physician has prescribed a meal plan, it may be hard for them to adjust to dietary restrictions. Often times, seniors are simply unaware of the symptoms which warrant a phone call to the doctor. Transitional care professionals from Visiting Angels Cleveland can monitor your loved one in Eastern Cuyahoga County and assist with crucial non-medical tasks, thereby helping them to avoid hospital readmission.
