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

When a loved one enters the hospital, you feel confident knowing that they are being supported by skilled hands and a full staff. But what happens once they return home? A recently discharged senior is never completely out of the woods and when their level of support drops drastically, it can lead to an unfortunate early readmission. Transitional care  from Visiting Angels® Marble Falls can help to build a bridge between hospital and home for your loved one and reduce their risk of readmission.

The Risks Facing Marble Falls Seniors

Returning home from the hospital is always a cause for celebration, however, when a senior is discharged after a prolonged hospital stay, their challenges have only just begun. Due to the nature of hospitalization - long hours spent in bed and disrupted sleep patterns - a senior can return home fragile and more in need of care than before they were admitted. Without transitional care, the next 30 days are when the risk of readmission is at its highest. Forgetting to take important medications or failing to accurately adhere to aftercare instructions are just a few of the common mistakes made by recently discharged Marble Falls seniors which can cause them to take a turn for the worse and require them to return to the hospital. These errors and more are easily preventable with proper transitional care.
