Transitioning from the hospital back to home life can be both stressful and challenging for seniors. Whether they are recovering from an illness or trying to regain mobility, the difficulty of living alone can cause readmission. At Visiting Angels® Newington, we have transitional care services that can help greatly reduce your loved one's risk of hospital readmission and ensure a safe recovery.
The first few weeks following a hospital stay are crucial for recovery and transitioning back into independent living. However, this time also holds the highest probability of readmission to the hospital. There are many reasons why your loved one could be readmitted to the hospital without the proper aid during this time.
Many seniors are readmitted due to the following:
All these factors could land your loved one back in the hospital, which could mean an end to their independent living. Visiting Angels Newington has the transitional care your loved one needs to recover safely and comfortably while regaining their independence.
Our caregivers can ensure that your loved one is following the recovery procedures given by their doctor. We have a wide range of personal care services, as well as assistance with daily activities and mobility around the home. Some of our services also include giving medication reminders and providing transportation for follow-up appointments.
For best results, we can start working with your loved one while they are still in the hospital. Before discharge, we can communicate with your loved one's medical team and gain a better understanding of their condition and what is needed for recovery. Then, we can effectively communicate this to your loved one and your family so everyone is on the same page.
To get started, contact Visiting Angels Newington and set up a free care assessment for your loved one. We are happy to discuss their needs and create their custom transitional care plan. We will also pair them with a compatible caregiver so they can feel comfortable with their assistance.
