Transitional Care in Albuquerque Helps Avoid Hospital Readmissions

Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care

For  many seniors, the first 30 days after a hospital discharge can be just as difficult as the time spent in the hospital itself. Noisy machines and frequent check-ins can leave sleep schedules a mess and make it difficult to rest and re-adjust back home. So how can you keep your loved one well cared for during their recovery? Visiting Angels® Albuquerque has the answer with transitional care using the Ready-Set-Go Home program. Our caregivers deliver top-quality transitional care to help seniors across Albuquerque, Rio Rancho, Los Lunas, Edgewood, Bernallilo, Placitas and Los Ranchos, NM avoid unnecessary hospital readmission. 

What Risks Do Seniors Face Back At Home in Albuquerque? 

Everyone who has ever had to endure a prolonged hospital stay knows that walking in through those doors means the start of a stressful and exhausting ordeal. What many people don't realize is that for seniors, walking out can mean the very same. Even though their health may be stable at the time of discharge, without transitional care, there are countless factors back at home which could send it back into decline. 

Some of those factors include:

  • Poor hygiene or nutrition
  • Insufficient rest or overexertion
  • Incorrectly taken or missed medications
  • Failure to adhere to doctor's orders
  • Too much stress
