How Transitional Care Helps
At Visiting Angels of South Dallas & Ellis County, we recognize that seniors face several challenges while in the hospital, as they prepare to leave, and when they return home that can contribute to readmission. Our Ready-Set-Go Home program addresses these issues:
- Lack of a hospital discharge plan. Before leaving the hospital, at your request, a Ready-Set-Go Home caregiver will meet with your loved one’s medical team to create a detailed transitional care plan using our Discharge Planning Guide.
- Trying to manage at home alone. Recovering alone can be especially difficult for seniors. At Visiting Angels of South Dallas & Ellis County, our caregivers provide non-medical transitional care that includes: bathing and dressing assistance, preparing nutritious meals or special diets, light housecleaning, arranging delivery of medical supplies, prescriptions, and special equipment, running errands, and monitoring fluids and medications.
- Exhaustion. With the chaos, unfamiliar schedules, and constant interruptions, seniors can become exhausted while in the hospital. Our
