Transitional Care in Novi Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready, Set, Go Home with Transitional Care
With our one-on-one transitional care, Visiting Angels® Novi helps local seniors avoid a return trip to the hospital. Our goal is to provide attentive in-home care to ease their transition back home and allow them to recover from their illness or injury in peace.
Why Readmissions Occur
Unfortunately, the rate of hospital readmission is quite high among the elderly. There are a number of factors that contribute to this trend, including:
- Difficult adjustments. The recovery process is full of adjustments. Seniors need to get used to their new situation, which may include reduced mobility and an increased risk of household accidents. Attempting to navigate this transition on their own can be incredibly difficult, so it really helps to have a kind and watchful presence around the home during this difficult time.
- Disrupted routine. Typically, seniors may have trouble getting rest and maintaining a healthy diet while in the hospital. This can add another obstacle to their path to recovery, as they often return home in a weakened state.
- Memory issues. Recovery from illness or injury often involves new medication and other things to keep track of. For seniors with memory issues, this can be a lot to handle. We can be there to provide medication reminders and make sure they are following any instructions from their doctors.
- Failure to follow up. Follow-up appointments are a crucial part of the recovery process. Left on their own, many seniors struggle to keep up with appointments for one reason or another. In addition to our memory support, we can also provide mobility aid and safe transportation to help them get where they need to go.
