How Transitional Care in Arlington TX Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
Is your loved one ready to go home after a hospital stay? As much as they may be looking forward to getting back into the daily rhythms of life at home, they likely need help with this important transition. Ready-Set-Go Home is the name of the transitional care program from Visiting Angels® Arlington TX. Our main goal with this senior care program is to assist elderly adults during the crucial period right before, during, and after a hospital discharge to help prevent complications from occurring.
What Causes Hospital Readmissions in Arlington TX?
A frequent cause of hospitalizations is seniors being unable to maintain their well-being on their own after a difficult illness or while recovering from an injury. It makes sense that elderly adults may lack the strength, mobility, or energy to care for themselves during this challenging recovery period. However, many do not have the help they need to ensure they can keep up with basic activities of daily living safely and comfortably. This often leads to a decline in their condition and a return to the hospital.
How Visiting Angels Arlington TX Helps
Our local senior care agency offers a spectrum of services that can be particularly beneficial for elderly adults who are being discharged from the hospital. These services are combined under our transitional care program.
Ready-Set-Go Home is based on a three-prong approach to care that is initiated before the senior is discharged from the hospital. Our care coordinators begin by talking with the senior and their family members prior to the discharge and helping them establish a plan for the weeks ahead.
When the senior arrives back home, we'll have a compassionate care provider from our team ready to help out with any tasks that may be too difficult for them to complete on their own. Examples of services our care providers often perform include offering medication reminders, assisting with personal care activities, and preparing nutritious meals.
At Visiting Angels Arlington TX, we also have a team who works behind the scenes to promote the well-being of our care recipients. These staff members identify high-risk seniors and help facilitate all the logistics of the caregiving process.
