Transitional Care in Huntsville Helps Avoid Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
Hospital readmissions can be a problem for many seniors and their families. Just when you get your loved one home from the hospital, the work of keeping them on the road to recovery begins. Without supportive care, many seniors end up back in the hospital within 30 days. At Visiting Angels® Huntsville, we want to help seniors in our community remain at home, where they can rest and recuperate in familiar and comforting surroundings. Our Ready-Set-Go Home transitional care program is helping seniors do just that.
Transitional Care Solutions in Huntsville
At Visiting Angels Huntsville, our transitional care program offers solutions that begin before your loved one leaves the hospital and continue to support them once they are at home. Our Ready-Set-Go Home transitional care program offers:
Our Ready-Set-Go Home Discharge Planning Guide.
Before your loved one leaves the hospital, a transitional care provider from our Huntsville office can meet with your loved one's medical team to create a transitional care plan using our exclusive Discharge Planning Guide. The Guide provides space for instructions for follow up care, dietary needs, and medical appointments. It's also helpful for caregivers from our Huntsville office and family caregivers, providing a space to make notes and stay up-to-date on your loved one’s progress. Doctors find it helpful when brought to appointments also.
Help with Medications.
Seniors can become anxious when filling new prescriptions and incorporating them into their existing regime. Our transitional care providers can take that stress away by arranging delivery of prescriptions and helping to make sure that all medications are taken and on schedule.
Stress-free rest in the comfort of one's own home.
Seniors often come home from the hospital tired. The constant interruptions and unfamiliar surroundings of the hospital often result in limited sleep. Our understanding transitional care professionals can help your loved one regain their strength and get much-needed rest in the quiet comfort of their home.
