Transitional Care in Havertown: What You Need to Know

If you have an elderly loved one who has been hospitalized due to illness, injury, or other cause, you may be anxious for them to return home. What many families don't realize is that discharge from the hospital is not the final step in their loved one's recovery. Recovery takes time, and continued support at home is often needed in order for seniors to make a full recovery. In fact, it is estimated by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Service that roughly 1 in 5 Medicare patients will face readmission to the hospital within the first 30 days. This is not only expensive, it is often extremely disheartening for seniors and their loved ones. Visiting Angels® Havertown PA can provide your loved one with transitional care to help them continue their recovery at home.
