Visiting Angels Has Dedicated Home Care Aides to Assist with Transitioning Home from Hospital Stays in Lancaster, Lititz, Gap, and Surrounding Areas

If your loved one is recovering in the hospital from an extended illness, injury, or surgical procedure, you have probably already spent days hoping for their improved health and good spirits. You are ready for your loved one to come home—but you might not be ready for what will happen in the first few days after their return. At Visiting Angels of Lancaster, we are here to help, with our Ready-Set-Go Home program and our team of expert home care aides.

The Importance of One on One Transitional Care

Transitional care is for clients who will be returning home from a stay at the hospital following any kind of major health event, and who may or may not be receiving one-on-one care already. Families who access transitional care have access to a wide range of services from our knowledgeable home care aides, including maintaining a clean home through light housekeeping, linens changing, and laundry, recommendations for changes in mobility like grab bars, additional lighting, or changing furniture layout, and help with everyday needs like meal preparation, medication reminders, and personal care.

Ready-Set-Go Home

Our Ready-Set-Go Home transitional care program builds up essential resources for your loved one in three key areas: in the hospital, in their home, and through a close relationship with an expert home care aide.

  • Ready: First, your family will get started by working with Visiting Angels of Lancaster to create a customized senior care plan based on your loved one’s individual health needs, preferences, habits, and more. If your loved one requires any specialized care, we will make sure they are able to access it, even if it is needed around the clock.
  • Set: Transitional care begins in the hospital, where your loved one’s caregiver will gather information about aftercare, follow-up appointments, changes in medication, dietary concerns, and more. We will also make sure your loved one remains comfortable in the hospital and provide companionship care during hours when family members are not available.
  • Go Home: Once at home, your loved one’s caregiver will make sure that they have everything they need to make a full recovery and avoid readmission. That includes following aftercare instructions, preparing healthy meals, encouraging rest and hydration, and being another pair of hands that can assist with any need your loved one might have.
