Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care

At Visiting Angels® Newport News, we offer a transitional care program that’s been designed to provide seniors with the support that they need to make a successful transition home after a stay at the hospital. We take a three-pronged approach to reduce the risk that your loved one will experience a hospital readmission, assisting you with coordinating their transition home and providing help with day-to-day tasks during their first weeks after being in the hospital. Whether your loved one lives in Newport News, Hampton, Yorktown, Williamsburg, Poquoson, or a nearby town, our professional caregivers are prepared to assist with transitional care services.

Why Choose Transitional Care from Visiting Angels Newport News?

The causes of hospital readmissions often stem from seniors’ inability to follow doctors’ orders. For many elderly adults, day-to-day tasks, including getting enough fluids, following a certain diet, or taking medications on schedule, can be a struggle. External support is often required in order to ensure that seniors can follow their doctors’ requirements after hospitalization. Our Ready-Set-Go Home program has been created to give seniors the support that they need after they’ve been discharged from the hospital, increasing their odds of recovery and reducing the risk that they will have to undergo a hospital readmission.

How Visiting Angels Newport News Can Help

Our approach to transitional care in Newport News includes the following:

  • Care at the hospital. We begin care at the hospital to help promote a successful transition home. We offer supportive services for seniors, as well as their families, preparing them for the upcoming changes. We’ll guide your family through the discharge process and provide important information about planning and reducing hospital readmission risks.
  • In-home care. We offer skilled, non-medical care at your loved one’s home to ensure that they are safe and comfortable during the recovery process. We also provide crucial monitoring services, watching for changes in your loved one’s behavior or signs that they are having trouble following through with doctors’ instructions.  
  • Support from our office. Our office works behind the scenes to give your family and your loved one’s caregivers the support that they need using tools to identify clients that have a high risk of readmission and helping coordinate deliveries and reminders.
