Transitional Care in Charlottesville Helps Avoid Hospital Readmissions

Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care

Visiting Angels® Charlottesville offers transitional care through our Ready-Set-Go-Home program. We can help your loved one prepare to leave the hospital and assist them with their continued recovery after discharge. You may assume your loved one is in the clear once they are discharged from the hospital. However, for 1 in 5 Medicare recipients who are readmitted to the hospital, this is not the case. Professional transitional care from Visiting Angels Charlottesville can help your family member avoid the expense and frustration of being readmitted to the hospital. 

Trouble Following Discharge Instructions

There are several reasons why seniors have a greater risk for readmission after discharge. Following your doctor's discharge instructions as closely as possible is key to a successful recovery. For many seniors following a discharge plan is more difficult than you may realize. For instance, remembering to take medications such as antibiotics can be difficult for some and may lead to infections when missed. Elderly loved ones may also struggle with mobility such as walking and moving from bed to chair, chair to bathroom, and more. Follow-up appointments and/or therapy may also be a requirement for your loved one after release from the hospital. Elderly patients sometimes miss appointments due to transportation issues. Transitional care from Visiting Angels Charlottesville can assist in all these areas and more.
