Transitional Care in Humble Helps Avoid Hospital Readmissions

Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care

Everyday, across the U.S., senior citizens face a greater risk of illness and injury than that of their younger counterparts. Here, at home in Humble, is no different. For seniors, one of the riskiest periods is the 30 days that follow a hospital stay. For many, that 30 days will contain a return to the hospital that could have been prevented by transitional care. Ready-Set-Go home is a one-of-a-kind transitional care program aimed at helping recently discharged seniors avoid an untimely return. 

What are the Readmission Risks for Humble Seniors?

For family caregivers, keeping a senior on track with their recovery can be tough. Caught up in the joy of their homecoming or exhausted from their time in the hospital, it's easy for a senior to have trouble processing, remembering and following through with their discharge instructions. It may be as serious as forgetting to take crucial medications, but even small slips like neglecting their nutrition or not getting enough sleep can cause their condition to worsen and require a return trip to the hospital. Fortunately, transitional care from a skilled caregiver in Humble can help to ensure your loved one doesn't take one of these common missteps towards readmission. 

Transitional Care  Keeps Humble Seniors at Home 

It's easy for a senior to make a mistake when they're in charge of their own post-hospital care. However, it's equally easy to help them avoid those mistakes with transitional care from Visiting Angels Humble. Our caregivers can connect directly with your relative's medical staff prior to their homecoming to make sure that they understand the full scope of their needs.

We can use the information they give us to inform how we provide transitional care services like:

  • Preparing nutritious meals or meeting specific dietary requirements
  • Coordinating deliveries from the pharmacy or grocery store
  • Tracking medications and follow-up appointments
  • Helping them to adhere to doctor's orders
  • Monitoring fluid intake and ensuring they get adequate rest
