Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care

When a parent or grandparent needs to be hospitalized for a procedure, it can send a major curve-ball through the family routine. Alternate plans need to be made to ensure that they have the care and support that they need, but what if you can't be there to provide it? Transitional care from Visiting Angels® Flagstaff can help. Our compassionate caregivers in Flagstaff can be there to provide physical, emotional, and logistical support for your family member each and every step of the way, ensuring that nothing interferes with their recovery. 

Why Do Seniors in Flagstaff Need Transitional Care?

When it's finally time for a senior to head home, they may be provided with a lot of information and specific instructions from their medical staff. But so much information can be overwhelming for a senior who has just endured a lengthy hospital stay or invasive procedure and they may not be able to take it all in. A senior misunderstanding the information given to them during discharge can lead to all kinds of trouble, including mistaken medications or a failure to follow-through on crucial aftercare instructions. Lack of support is another risk that seniors without transitional care may face. Once back at home, Flagstaff area seniors may struggle to complete basic tasks like bathing or dressing. They may also be in a hurry to resume other activities which might be too strenuous for them to attempt. All of these things can result in a senior heading back to the hospital much sooner than they had hoped to.
