Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care

At Visiting Angels® Winter Park, we understand how crucial the first 30 days after a hospital discharge can be for seniors. That’s why we offer a transitional care program called Ready-Set-Go Home for elderly adults in Orlando, Winter Park, and the surrounding areas. This program includes a variety of services that assist seniors during the period following a hospital discharge and ensure that they have the support that they need to experience a successful recovery.

Why Choose Transitional Care in Orlando: Causes of Readmissions

Seniors may be readmitted to the hospital for a variety of reasons, but it’s not uncommon for preventable readmissions to occur because of elderly adults’ inability to follow through with their doctors’ orders. Daily activities can be a struggle for seniors after an exhausting hospital stay, making it difficult for them to cook nutritious meals, adhere to a strict medication schedule, or attend follow-up appointments. Our transitional care services at Visiting Angels Winter Park offer elderly adults in Orlando the outside support that they need to ensure they’re meeting their doctors’ recommendations and are recovering safely. In addition, our caregivers offer valuable monitoring that can bring attention to risky behaviors like skipping medication dosages or missing important appointments.

How Our Transitional Care Services Help Seniors in Orlando

At Visiting Angels Winter Park, we take a three-pronged approach to transitional care, providing seniors in Orlando with a range of supportive services while giving their families guidance during this critical time. Here’s what you can expect from Ready-Set-Go Home:

  • In-hospital care. We begin care when a loved one is still in the hospital, talking them through the discharge planning process and providing your family with support when needed. We’ll also discuss important behaviors and risks so that a loved one can be prepared for a successful recovery.
  • At-home care. Once a loved one has been discharged from the hospital, we’ll continue to provide supportive care services at their home. We’ll assist with day-to-day activities, such as cooking healthy meals and helping with personal care routines. We also monitor our care recipients to help ensure they’re following their doctors’ guidelines.
  • Care from our office. Our office staff members have access to resources that allow them to identify high-risk clients and support our caregivers with the process of providing care. We can also set up reminders and deliveries as needed.
