Transitional Elder Care Services for Post-Hospitalization in Greater Aurora, CO
If your loved one is recovering in the hospital from an extended illness, injury, or surgical procedure, you have probably already spent days hoping for their improved health and good spirits. You are ready for your loved one to come home—but you might not be planning for what will happen in the first few days once they have returned. At Visiting Angels of Aurora, we are here to help, with our Ready-Set-Go Home transitional elder care.
What is Transitional Care?
Transitional home care is for clients who may or may not already be receiving elder care at home, and who will be returning home from a stay at the hospital following any kind of major health event. Families who access transitional care have access to a wide range of services from our knowledgeable Angels, including maintaining a clean home through light housekeeping, linens changing, and laundry, recommendations for changes in mobility like grab bars, additional lighting, or changing furniture layout, and help with everyday needs like meal preparation, medication reminders, and personal care.
Our Ready-Set-Go Home essential elder care services build up resources for your loved one in three key areas: with one of our Angels, in the hospital, and in their home.
First, your family will get started by working with Visiting Angels of Aurora to create a customized one-on-one elder care plan based on your loved one’s individual health needs, preferences, habits, and more. If your loved one requires any specialized care, we will make sure they are able to access it, even if it is needed around the clock.
Transitional care begins in the hospital. Our Angel will meet your loved one and your family, and gathers information about aftercare, follow-up appointments, changes in medication, dietary concerns, and more. We will also make sure your loved one remains comfortable in the hospital and can provide companionship care during hours when family members are not available.
Once your loved one has returned home our home health aides will make sure that they have everything they need to make a full recovery and avoid readmission. That includes following aftercare instructions, preparing healthy meals, encouraging rest and hydration, and being another pair of hands that can assist with any need your loved one might have.
