Transitional Care in Longview Helps Avoid Hospital Readmissions

Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care

Even for healthy seniors, there may come a time when a hospital stay is unavoidable; joints can wear out, illnesses catch and accidents happen. When your loved one is hospitalized, you feel confident knowing they are in the competent hands of skilled professionals. But who will look after them when they return home? With an astonishing number of seniors having to return to the hospital within 30 days of their discharge, having the support of at home transitional care becomes essential. The trusted senior care professionals at Visiting Angels® Longview offer transitional care that helps seniors recuperate successfully at home. 

What Challenges Face Longview Seniors?

For many Longview-area seniors, transitioning home from the hospital poses a whole host of challenges that are too difficult to overcome alone. Without transitional care, some of those challenges can cause additional discomfort and stress and others can truly endanger the senior themselves, requiring a return to the hospital. 

These challenges range from big to small and can include:

  • Readjusting to their normal sleep and meal schedules
  • Mobility-related issues following a surgery
  • Fatigue due to exhaustion or medication side-effects
  • Remembering to take medications on time
  • Keeping closely to their discharge instructions
  • Staying social and intellectually occupied during bed rest

How Transitional Care Can Help 

At Visiting Angels Longview, we aim to make our transitional care as complete as possible, guiding seniors from the hospital to home as seamlessly as we can. To do that, we start by educating our clients and their families through our Ready-Set-Go-Home guide. This essential guide is full of helpful information regarding the hospital discharge process. Knowing what to expect helps a senior to feel more comfortable with their situation once they're released. Our discharge planning guide can also help families to know which questions to ask regarding care, so that they have the full picture before they head home.

Back at home, our companion caregivers provide skilled and compassionate assistance in whatever capacity your loved one needs most, whether it's staying on top of meals and medications, or keeping in touch with faraway family members.
