The Importance of Professional In-Home Care During the Hospital-to-Home Transition
During your loved one's post-hospital transition, one of the most important things will be to ensure that they are following their doctor-directed recovery plan. This will help them avoid the risk of a serious complication or hospital readmission. However, the sad fact is that most older adults are too weak to follow doctor’s orders to a T. They would have been even before their stint at the hospital.
That is what makes the role of professional home care providers so important here. Through providing seniors with the personalized assistance they need, Visiting Angels Loveland makes up for these weaknesses and give them a good shot at making the best of their golden years.
"We have had an amazing experience with Visiting Angels. My mom underwent a massive surgery that prevented her from being able to care for herself afterward. While recovering the Angels have been great keeping up with day-to-day chores and meals allowing my family to come and go within our schedule. We had to start with 24/7 coverage due to mobility issue. As she healed, our case worker constantly checked up on things and helped tailor the schedule as mom's needs reduced. The peace of mind they provide is priceless. Mom's transition from the hospital, to her own home without skilled nursing could not have gone as smoothly without the Angels.
Every one of the Angels that has been assigned has been professional, kind and someone I could easily call a friend. Bottom line, Visiting Angels filled the gap between having a family member there and a nurse at all time. We highly recommend their services if your family is in a similar situation."
