Two visiting angels caregivers providing transitional care for seniors after hospital visit

Transitional Care in Birmingham Helps Avoid Hospital Readmissions

Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care

When someone is discharged from the hospital the last thing they want is to have to go back. Unfortunately the reality for nearly 2.6 million seniors per year is that they will get readmitted to the hospital at some point during the first 30 days after discharge. Visiting Angels® Birmingham can help your loved one avoid this scenario by providing non-medical assistance at home. Our compassionate caregivers can lend a hand to your loved one after discharge so they can continue on the road to recovery.

Higher Risk of Readmission During First 30 Days

You may be wondering what makes the first 30 days after discharge a riskier period for seniors. There are several reasons an elderly loved one may be readmitted to the hospital after already being discharged. These may include:

  • Inability to follow-through with discharge instructions
  • Exhaustion due to poor sleep in and out of the hospital
  • Failing to make it to follow-up appointments
  • Missing medication doses or stopping too soon
  • Trouble managing an illness on their own

Transitional senior care services from Visiting Angels Birmingham can provide valuable assistance to your loved one so they are less likely to struggle in these areas.
