Transitional Care in Bryan-College Station Helps Avoid Hospital Readmissions

Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care

When someone you love is admitted into the hospital, you rely on the trained professionals there to take good care of them. So why not do the same when it comes to your loved one’s post-hospitalization care? Too often, when a senior returns home, they go from having a full set of staff and resources at their fingertips, to having very little assistance. This abrupt shift can leave a senior without the support they need to recover properly and very frequently leads to premature hospital readmission. However, for seniors in Bryan-College Station, there is a solution: transitional care from Visiting Angels® of Bryan, TX. 

Risking an Unsupervised Return

Across the US and right here at home in Bryan-College Station, senior citizens coming home from the hospital face a higher risk of hospital readmission than their younger counterparts for a variety of reasons. Things like disrupted sleep while in-hospital or medication side-effects may have left them weak and exhausted, which can easily lead to mistakes being made. For instance, without transitional care, seniors may fail to take their medications on time or even taking the wrong dosage. They may also fail to get enough rest or water, both of which are essential elements in the healing process.
