Transitional Care in Kingwood Helps Avoid Hospital Readmissions

Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care

Having a loved one in the hospital means having a lot of responsibility fall onto your shoulders, and a lot of worry in your heart - especially if that loved one is a senior relative. Keeping up with their appointments, visitations, medications and deliveries can be overwhelming. So when your loved one is on the mend, the last thing either one of you want is for them to wind up back in the hospital. Unfortunately, for many seniors in Kingwood and across the country, that very often is the outcome. However, transitional care services from Visiting Angels® Baytown can help minimize the risk of readmission for your loved one. 

Why Does Readmission Happen Without Transitional Care?

For most seniors, transitioning from having the support of a full staff while in the hospital, to an empty house, can be jarring when there is nothing in place to bridge the gap. Who will be keeping them on top of their medications? Who will keep an eye on how much fluid they drink or whether or not they are following their discharge instructions? All of these tasks and activities are the key to a smooth recovery. Failing to take medications on time, eat healthy meals, attend follow up appointments, and rest can all lead to hospital readmission. That's why Visiting Angels Baytown designed our Ready-Set-Go Home transitional care program. Our caregivers help with all of these activities and more making the transition back home easier for seniors throughout the Kingwood area.

Transitional Care Keeps Your Loved One Covered in Kingwood

With all of the many risks for readmission, how do you safeguard your loved one? Transitional care from Visiting Angels Baytown supplies the perfect solution. We'll send a compassionate caregiver right into your loved one's home to provide assistance throughout their recovery. They can be there to tend to their needs around the clock, or check-in on them from time to time as necessary. Our caregivers can even visit your relative in the hospital prior to their discharge to keep them company during the long hours spent in bed and help them prepare for their release.
