Transitional Care in Farmington Helps Avoid Hospital Readmissions

Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care

For seniors who have been recently released from the hospital, the need for care doesn't stop when they walk out of the hospital doors. In fact, for more the 2.6 million seniors across America, the struggle to stay healthy continues at home and ends with hospital readmission. To prevent your loved one from becoming a part of that unfortunate statistic, you need a strong foundation of support at home, which isn't always possible if you don't live close-by. That's why Visiting Angels® Farmington offers transitional care through our Ready-Set-Go Home program 

Home should always feel like the safest place in the world, but for seniors returning from the hospital, home can be full of hurdles between them and successfully regaining their health. At the hospital, there is a full staff to help your loved one manage their needs, but who will help them manage at home?

Transitional care from Visiting Angels Farmington can help your loved one to avoid:

  • Missing medications
  • Failing to attend follow-up appointments
  • Not reporting worsening symptoms or side-effects from new medications
  • Feeling exhausted or strained 
  • Neglecting aftercare procedures

Keeping Farmington Seniors Healthy at Home with Transitional Care

At Visiting Angels Farmington, we believe that the best way to ensure a smooth transition home is to start before seniors are even discharged from the hospital. Our caregivers can be requested to visit your loved one during their stay to provide support for them at the hospital and help make sure they understand the care they're receiving. We can also work directly with the discharge coordinator to design a transitional care strategy that supports their doctor's orders. 

At home, our caregivers are there to make sure your loved one is looked after and ensure that discharge instructions are followed through.

Our transitional care isn't limited to what we can do inside the home, either. If your loved one doesn't have the tools or resources they need to stay healthy, we can coordinate things behind the scenes to get them there, including managing food deliveries or equipment transport. 

Visiting Angels Farmington is proud to be the trusted choice for transitional care for families in Aztec, Kirtland, Fruitland and Shiprock, NM.
