Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care

Through our Ready-Set-Go Home program, Visiting Angels® Brighton provides recently hospitalized seniors with transitional care for an easier, more comfortable return to home life. Just as important, we can help to avoid hospital readmission, which is a serious risk for seniors after a recent hospital discharge. 

The 30-day period after a hospital release is a time when seniors are highly likely to re-experience hospital readmission. If your loved one is in the hospital, now is a good time to make sure they have the support they'll need upon returning home. At Visiting Angels Brighton, our caregivers are committed to providing essential personal transitional care before and after a client is discharged. We can assist you with coordinating your loved one's return home, with dedicated care whenever they need it. 

Why Readmissions Are A Concern For Brighton Area Seniors

Hospital readmissions are highly common for seniors, especially in the first few weeks after returning home. Unfortunately, readmissions come with a lowered recovery rate, which is why it's so crucial that your loved one has comprehensive care in the weeks after they return home. 

For many seniors, the days after a hospital discharge can be disorienting. The rapid changes in environment can be hard to process for many elderly individuals, leading to increased risk of accidents and falls. In addition, doctors often leave very detailed recovery plans for discharged patients, to help ensure a healthy recovery. For aging seniors who are confused or in pain, it can be difficult to follow these complex instructions. With transitional care from Visiting Angels Brighton, seniors in Henderson, Ft. Lupton, and Brighton can get dedicated support from a professional caregiver. This can be crucial to preventing another stay at the hospital.

  • After returning home. In those crucial days after returning home, our detail-oriented caregivers can provide 24-hour care, immediately alerting family and care professionals if they see changes in your loved one's health. 
  • From behind-the-scenes. Our Visiting Angels headquarters can assist in supporting your family in the weeks after a hospital release, providing medication and meal reminders, scheduling doctor's appointments, and more.
