How Transitional Care in Fort Worth Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
We've created our transitional care program based on the understanding that a hospital readmission can have significant consequences for seniors' quality of life. In many cases, returning to the hospital soon after discharge can disrupt seniors' independence and contribute to a decline in their health. As the mission of Visiting Angels® Fort Worth is to support seniors with aging in place, we go above and beyond to help them stay out of the hospital and remain at home where they feel most at ease.
The full range of transitional care services your loved one may need to successfully transition from hospital to home are available as part of our Ready-Set-Go Home program. This program includes support in the hospital setting, high-quality in-home care, and help from the caring staff members of our local agency.
What Causes Hospital Readmissions in Fort Worth?
Seniors frequently return to the hospital not too long after being discharged. This isn't necessarily because they weren't ready to be discharged to begin with. Often, they simply don't have the help they need to maintain their well-being at home. This can result in them avoiding essential tasks because they are too challenging, which in turn can cause serious health complications.
How Our Transitional Care Program Can Help
With our transitional care program, we aim to make sure elderly adults have every form of support they may need prior to their discharge and as they get back into the groove of life at home in the Fort Worth area. As we personalize our services to the individual care concerns and risks each senior faces, care recipients can look forward to high-quality support that helps them implement their doctors' directives.
For a better understanding of the three stages of our Ready-Set-Go Home program, read below:
- We visit seniors and their family members in the hospital. Our care coordinators offer gentle guidance and plenty of resources for the discharge planning process.
- We match seniors with compassionate in-home care providers. Caregivers are ready to help with everything from cooking meals to bathing and remembering medication schedules.
- We track seniors' progress and coordinate care as needed. Our local office in Fort Worth is at your service to assist with coordinating schedules and ironing out logistics.
