Transitional Care in Miami Helps Avoid Hospital Re-admissions

Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care

There is nothing more precious than your health. That's why a hospital stay can be so alarming. While many families understand the risks associated with surgery or other procedures, they often don't think about the risks associated with going back home. Approximately 20% of patients over the are of 65 are re-admitted back to the hospital within only 30 days of discharge. Visiting Angels® Miami provides transitional care with expertise and a compassionate touch for your peace of mind, so that your loved one can stay at home where they are most comfortable.

It is important to understand why re-admissions occur. The reasons are often varied and can include: post-hospital fatigue, due to disrupted sleep or meal schedules causing weakness, or lack of mobility, making it difficult for them to attend important follow-up medical appointments. But perhaps the greatest risk of all is incorrectly following aftercare instructions, which can cause your loved one's condition to worsen, rather than improve. 

Transitional Care Equals Peace of Mind

For many seniors in the hospital, there's just one thing on their minds and that's going home. However, it's important to think about the details of exactly how they will manage once they get there. Visiting Angels Miami can help make sure that you and your loved one's have the support needed to remain safe at home:

  • Company and comfort during and after the hospital.
  • Asking important questions. 
  • Home assistance to keep from overexerting themselves at home.
  • Reminding it's time to take medications.
  • Coordinating medical appointments, deliveries of medical equipment, supplies and food.
  • Fall Prevention and safety.
