Transitional Care in Rockwall TX Helps Avoid Hospital Readmissions

Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care

For many seniors, there is nothing worse than having to endure a long hospital stay. Not only is hospitalization costly and stressful, it's also an unwelcome interruption to daily life. So when a senior is discharged and can finally return home, the last thing they want is to be readmitted. But for most seniors recovering at home, extra support and assistance is often needed to avoid rehospitalization. That’s why at Visiting Angels® Garland, we offer our Ready-Set-Go Home transitional care program to seniors and their families in Garland, Wylie, Rowlett, Rockwall TX, and the surrounding communities. Our skilled caregivers provide the extra hand many seniors need to avoid hospital readmission.

How Transitional Care Can Help

If you have a loved one returning home from hospitalization due to injury, illness, or surgery, you probably have concerns about their safety and well-being, such as:

  • Will they remember to take their medications on time?

  • Can they follow their doctor’s discharge instructions correctly?

  • How will impaired mobility impact their ability to bathe, prepare meals, and move around their home?

  • Who will tend to their needs if they are feeling tired or weak?

  • If they have new symptoms or aren’t feeling well, will they report it to their physician?

Lack of support in these areas can leave seniors vulnerable to hospital readmission. In fact, 1 in 5 seniors released from the hospital is readmitted within 30 days. At Visiting Angels Garland, we’re committed to helping seniors avoid readmission and remain in the comfort of their own home in Rockwell TX during their recovery by providing the highest quality transitional care services and caregivers.
