Transitional Care in East Lansing Reduces Hospital Readmissions

With our transitional care option, Visiting Angels® East Lansing provides specialized support for seniors as they transition home from the hospital. Our goal is to maintain a safe and comfortable environment, so they can recover in the peace, privacy, and dignity of their own home. Our support is always customized, but typical home care duties often include assistance with everyday tasks and monitoring.

Why Readmissions Occur

Here are a few common reasons why seniors often struggle to stay out of the hospital:

  • Difficult adjustments. The injury or illness that sent them to the hospital in the first place may require some new lifestyle adjustments. This can be difficult for a person to manage on their own, so it's a great idea to have a caregiver around who can navigate their new condition and help them avoid dangerous or stressful activities. 
  • Disrupted routine. The time period immediately following a hospital stay is a crucial time for your loved one to get rest. It can be difficult to sleep in a hospital, so it's important to make sure they can return home and completely relax. Our caregivers can handle housework, errands, meal prep, and other duties to make life much easier during this difficult time. 
  • Memory issues. If your loved one struggles with memory issues, they may fail to remember new medical advice or have trouble keeping up with their medication schedule. We can provide the stable support they need to stay on track. 
  • Failure to follow up. A missed follow-up appointment after a hospital stay can really hurt their chances of a smooth recovery. We will provide safe transportation, mobility assistance, and any other support they need to attend their appointments.

In addition to the above services, our caregivers also provide constant monitoring. Your loved one may be in a fragile state during their recovery.

We also communicate frequently with family members to keep them updated on their loved one's progress. You can have peace of mind while your loved one recovers at home with our assistance.

Each individual's recovery period will be different. Whether your loved one is recovering from an illness or injury, we will create a custom care plan to meet their needs.
