Transitional Care in Midland Helps Avoid Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
There's nothing more precious than family. That's why, when a loved one is admitted to the hospital, it can feel like you are enduring the entire process with them. Maybe you stay by their side through the night, or are on call for nurse's questions during the day. When your loved one is sent home at last, you may feel that the ordeal is finally over, but for a recently discharged senior, that isn't the case. Everyday, seniors across the US and right here at home in Midland face an extremely high risk of hospital readmission within 30 days of their release. To prevent it, Visiting Angels® Midland provides transitional care to help keep your loved one at home, safe and sound.
The Challenges Facing Midland Seniors
For a senior citizen, the 30 days following their release is a crucial period in terms of their recovery. It's during this time that, without the aid of transitional care, their risk of readmission is at its highest due to a number of factors.
Some of those factors include:
- Exhaustion due to interrupted sleep schedules while in hospital
- Muscular weakness from being bedridden
- Failure to follow doctor's orders post-release
- Difficulty getting adequate nutrition or fluids
- Trying to do too much, too soon
How Transitional Care Can Prevent Readmission
Getting organized for a senior's hospital homecoming can be complicated for a family caregiver. You may need to facilitate deliveries for meals or medical equipment and make sure that your loved one had adequate supervision. When you choose transitional care from Visiting Angels Midland, we can take care of all of that.
Making sure they get enough fluids, rest, and closely following aftercare instructions are just a few pieces of the puzzle. We can help your loved one get a head start on their recovery by providing them with our handy Ready-Set-Go Home guide which prepares them for their release by prompting them to consider and ask important questions about their transitional care prior to their release.
