Transitional Care in Havertown Helps Avoid Hospital Readmissions

Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care

After a hospital visit, seniors are often at high risk of complications during recovery. Roughly 20% of all seniors on Medicare end up back in the hospital within 30 days of a hospital discharge, and the risk is even higher for certain conditions. Through our Ready-Set-Go Home care program, Visiting Angels® Havertown offers post-hospital transitional care to seniors in the Havertown, PA, area. This program can reduce seniors’ risk of complications during recovery from injury, illness, or surgery.

Transitional care services from Visiting Angels Havertown are available to seniors throughout the Havertown & Broomall area, including seniors living along the Philadelphia Main Line, as well as those located nearby in Delaware County, Montgomery County, and Philadelphia County.

How Transitional Care Can Reduce Re-Admission Risks

Visiting Angels Havertown offers specialized, non-medical transitional care for Havertown-area seniors.  Our transitional care services are provided in the comfort of home, making it easier for seniors to follow their doctor’s recovery directives. Following these directives improves the chance of recovery and significantly reduces risk of readmission to the hospital.

Some of the ways transitional care from Visiting Angels Havertown can help include:

  • Providing physical assistance to seniors, which helps them rest and recuperate. This also lowers the risk of seniors overexerting themselves during recovery, which can lead to serious complications.
  • Caregivers can offer medication reminders to help seniors stick to their medication schedules.
  • We can help seniors stick to doctor-recommended dietary restrictions, helping seniors plan, purchase, prepare, and eat nutritious foods.
  • By coordinating our care around your loved one’s discharge plan, we can provide assistance with non-medical aspects of recovery.
  • Our caregivers will keep constant tabs on your loved one’s condition, helping detect signs of relapse or complication early.

If your loved one has been admitted to the hospital, Visiting Angels Havertown can help. Our caregivers can help your loved one transition successfully back home and limit the risk of readmission. We'll also be there to provide a respite for family members who are helping your loved one at home. You don't have to go it alone. Visiting Angels Havertown is here to help.
