Transitional Care in Little Rock Helps Avoid Hospital Readmissions

Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care

When you're the caregiver for an elderly relative, getting your loved one the very best care is always a top priority. It's especially important following surgery or other hospital stay. Time spent in the hospital is both stressful and expensive, so once released, nobody ever wants to have to go back. Unfortunately, seniors are especially prone to readmission within 30 days after their release. However, with help from Visiting Angels® Little Rock, your loved one can remain safely and comfortable in their own home without the risk of readmission. We provide transitional care through our Ready-Set-Go home program which smooths the path from hospital to home for seniors across the Little Rock area. 

Although readmission is all too common among seniors, it is often preventable with proper transitional care. Common issues like missed medications or incorrect dosages can be avoided when a caregiver companion is present to help them keep track. Often, meal times and sleep schedules become disrupted during a hospital stay leading to a senior eating and sleeping poorly after being discharged, which can land them back in the hospital. Transitional care from Visiting Angels Little Rock is designed with all of these things in mind. 

Ensuring that injuries aren't worsened by unnecessary strain and that doctor's aftercare instructions are followed to the letter is essential when it comes to preventing hospital readmission. When you choose Ready-Set-Go Home for your loved one, our caregivers will work directly with your loved one's medical care professionals to build a transitional care plan that fills in the gaps between hospital care and home care. From medication reminders and monitoring, to everyday assistance, our caregivers can provide the transitional care your loved one needs to avoid a return trip to the hospital.
