When a relative falls ill, your only thoughts are about their recovery. When it's an older relative, your concern may be doubled, since it's senior citizens who are at the greatest risk of readmission following their discharge. On your own, managing their day-to-day needs after a hospital stay can be tricky. Non-medical transitional care from the experts at Visiting Angels® Davis-Weber can help to keep your loved one on the path to a smooth and speedy recovery.
Even when they've not been recently hospitalized, seniors who live alone face an especially greater risk of accidental injury. After a prolonged period spent in the hospital, their risk becomes even greater. Reduced mobility, missed medications, and overexertion are just a few of the common reasons a senior may need to be readmitted. In fact, there is a nearly endless list of dangers that an unsupervised senior can encounter in the first 30 days following their discharge, any one of which can lead to an untimely return, which transitional care from Visiting Angels Davis-Weber can prevent.
Visiting Angels Davis-Weber designed our one-of-a-kind transitional care program with the specific challenges which face homecoming seniors in mind. We believe in supplying Layton seniors with a comprehensive approach to their recovery which can start when they first enter the hospital and provide support for them throughout their treatment and after.
